Why Still Teach Cursive Writing? — No One Uses It! [POLL]
My kids come home from school and want help with their homework. "Sure," I say... until I realize it's CURSIVE! So I say what every good parent tells their children struggling in school: "Don't worry, you're never going to use that."
Seriously, handwriting is almost obsolete, why learn a variation of handwriting that is hard to write, hard to learn and hard to read?
A teacher called into the show and said kids need to learn cursive so they can write and read signatures. But most people I know use the "doctor" signature anyway -- you know, a first letter and then a squiggle.
