Abstract
The purpose of the study was to investigate the politics of teachersí associations and its impact on
studentsí learning outcomes at primary and secondary levels in Balochistan. The theoretical premise of this
study was based on rent-seeking theory and used convergent parallel mixed-methods design. The empirical
data was collected from 150 students, 150 teachers, and 150 association members through self-administrated
close-ended questionnaires using a simple systematic random sampling method including 8 semi-structured
interviews were conducted with district education officers. The findings revealed that teachers' as sociations
are active with a huge membership, united and highly motivated to resolve teachersí problems. Furthermore,
the findings of the study demonstrated that teachers are involved in politics and teachers' associations hurt
studentsí learning outcomes due to strikes and protests. Additionally, findings suggested that teachers'
associations are blocking educational reforms and do not allow new policies to be implemented. Qualitative
findings of the study supported the quantitative findings, as well as made a theoretical contribution to rentseeking
theory. Further implications are discussed and suggestions for future research are suggested.

Key words: Politics of Teachers; Associations; Education; Balochistan
