I believe I have a solution to help the current budget crisis in education. Instead of hiring teachers and classroom aides we should replace them with computers.
These computers will be color coordinated for each grade. Seafoam green will teach third grade by using complex algorithms and artificial intelligence programs. These programs will provide a high speed flow of facts which are geared toward standardized testing. This stream of data will surely be absorbed by each student, and no student will be left behind.
There are some flaws which need to be addressed: The computer cannot recognize if a student has been fed, taken their medication, is sad from problems at home, or is being bullied. The computer can never share a personal story or life experience with the student, nor can it recommend a subject which someday might spark an interest in a career or hobby.
