Teachers being replaced by robots

Many professions in the world have already been replaced by computers and machines, teachers being one of the most discussed as to whether it is a good idea or not. In this essay we will discuss the pros and cons of both

One of the advantages of replacing teachers with robots and machines is that they will never make mistakes and they know everything. For example they will be able to explain every subject and answer all your questions, count all your points correctly on your tests and many more.

Another advantage of machines is that they hold no prejudice or grudges. A robot will not refuse to teach you or answer a question just because you are a minority or because you said a wrong thing that one time 3 years ago.

Now the disadvantages - they are robots, they do not feel emotions, such as remorse. They will not feel sorry for you if you got 1 hour of sleep last night or you just had a mental breakdown. You will be tested no matter what.

Another disadvantage is that machines and their repairs are incredibly costly. Schools barely have enough money to buy proper lockers, let alone complex machines and replacement parts. Many schools would if machine education was mandatory, cheap out and sacrifice the quality of students education and perhaps even health and safety.

In conclusion robots will be very cool as teachers since they know everything and all that sweet stuff. But we do not think that students will find it very beneficial when they slept 2 hours last night and had a breakdown on the bus and the robot teacher will still give them the test. They might seem cool but they really are not.
