Are erasers in school "instruments of the devil"?

I was looking on the BBC website and I came across a story about how erasers should be banned in schools, so I decided to bring it to, so people can give their opinions on this.

Chris Stokel-Walker, a cognitive scientist has said that people shouldn't be afraid to make mistakes because if they present something where they have rubbed out, they are showing the world that they haven't made any mistakes and that they got it right the first time.

Here is what it says on the BBC News website: The cognitive scientist told the Daily Telegraph that rubbers create "a culture of shame about error. It's a way of lying to the world, which says 'I didn't make a mistake. I got it right first time.'"

My opinion on this is that they should not be banned because work can look really messy if you do not rub things out. However I do partly agree with the scientist and his view. Please comment below with your opinion on this matter! The full story is available here:

I agree with Chris Stokel-Walker. I think that in subjects where these is a definite answer such as Maths and Science, rubbers should be allowed as you are either right or wrong. However, in subjects where you are neither right or wrong if you back up your answer (RE, English), people shouldn't feel the need to present a "correct" viewpoint if they have clearly backed up what they have stated.

we need to take into account that if we did not have erasers we would be wasting a lot of paper.....

If we didn't have earasers - rubbers I call them - just imagine how messy everyones work would be. To not have erasers would be the downfall of life..................

Without erasers Art would be a hard lesson. I'm always trying to improve my work. Also in my other topics I use a pen to cross out my work with a line, so the teacher can see I improved it. I think they shouldn't be banned. :)
