Well, this seems more than a semantic issue. It looks more like a fairly
distorted vision of what 'teaching' means. You can instruct someone to
paint like Degas, but your students will then only be that and cannot
therefore be called an artist.
Teaching is to me to help people to THINK, JUDGE, and have OPINIONS with
their own mind and will. Teaching is definitely not telling your student
WHAT TO THINK nor HOW TO THINK.
And I'm afraid that's not something a computer can do.
