It blew my mind a couple of months ago when I learned my two oldest grandchildren didn’t know how to write cursive! They were not taught cursive in school. They are 13 and 11 years of age. I was learning cursive in first grade. I never gave this much thought until recently there was a local news story asking if they should teach cursive in school again. Again, it blows my mind they don’t.
It doesn’t matter that letters are going to be typed on the computer or high tech type writer. I use the computer a lot……there are times I still need to write. There are still papers, documents etc. that need a signature! I prefer a cursive signature, not only is it faster it looks better. Its your signature, its like a thumb print.
My point, if they stopped teaching cursive writing, what else have they stopped teaching?
