Should cursive be taught in school?
I just learned my child's school will not teach her cursive. They are abandoning it for more relevant topics, such as typing and state mandated testing requirements. I am upset by this, as I write cursive on a daily basis and expect the school to teach my daughter the same things I learned in school. How can my child read a note I leave her if they don't teach her cursive? How can she sign a check or legal document when she gets older? Yes, I can print, but I don't often and shouldn't have to worry about how I scribble out a quick note. I suppose I'm asking for opinions, but I'd like to know the why behind whether you think cursive should be taught in schools or not. I'd like to gather valid points to take to the school. Thanks!
