taught in elementary schools. Did you know this?? At least this is true here in our area.
And when did this all start coming down?
I need to know so I can start printing my notes and letters to people under a certain age.
I need to know what age this all started (or rather ended.)
I have the ability to change with the times. Remember how I use to double space between sentences?
I try to live by the philosophy: when I know better, I do better.
But really, is getting rid of cursive writing "doing better?"
How is this new generation suppose to sign documents?
What if they want to quickly takes notes at a class or seminar
and don't have access to a laptop or Ipad or whatever it is they use?
Printing takes so much longer because you have to lift your pen up after every letter.
And how will this generation read legal documents, like that Declaration of Independence?
Is Austin able to read the letters I've written to him while on his mission?
Hopefully the end of cursive didn't happen until after he graduated from elementary school...
I've heard it takes too long for teachers to teach cursive,
when they could be using that time for other learning.
Does this really make sense? What do you think?
