What our fans are saying:
"They have taken cursive out to they can prepare more for state tests. It is introduced in 2nd grade and dropped by 4th." -- Michelle L.
"How are people supposed to sign their legal documents? With block printing? Aaarrghhh!" -- Marsha L.
"Cursive is not encouraged at school (Jr/Sr High) from what my kids tell me. I think the best way to get them to write cursive is by writing letters to their Grandparents and that is a positive situation all the way around!" -- Sharla L.
"Its sad- cursive writing wasn't required too much in elementary school when my son was younger. He is now a junior in high school, and its technology all the way. Its sad, really. ..." -- Anne M.
"Pretty soon, children will not be able to read cursive. They stopped teaching it here. That is so sad when people can type and text and not write a letter. They even print their name when signing check or documents. Where is the technology world going to stop and let us be real people again?" -- Susan C.
