Some still do I think, well hope, but it's probably because they focus a lot on typing and computer skills not so much on handwriting. Personally, I think handwriting is very important so I do not agree.
Them schools do still be teachin cursiv, but they just aint makin as big a deal of now. Now their teachin more of theat structure fo sendencesss so that insteed os sayin "lets go eat kids!" we say "lets go eat, kids!"
"Cursive" is *just one form* of longhand writing, and far from the best of them. Other forms -- like Italic, Copperplate, Blackletter, and so on -- are far more legible, easier to learn, quicker to teach, and frankly more beautiful. Cursive, on the other hand, all too readily degenerates into that illegible scribble for which doctors are notorious -- which has caused thousands of deaths from "medical error". Just ask any pharmacist. If only for all the lives it has cost, Cursive deserves to die!
