I was reading this article today and got into a debate with my mom. I think cursive is a dead practice and she thinks children should continue to keep learning/using it. I recently wrote a long letter to a family member that doesn't use computers, and found it to be the most tiring task ever ... I know I can't be alone in this?

So, POLL TIME! Pass this on to your friends (it's a public entry), I'm curious as to what everyone else thinks! Feel free to leave comments if you have something else to say as well.

That's interesting - for me printing is done at a much more rapid speed than cursive. I found, while sitting down to write my letter, that cursive came painstakingly slow because I was attempting to remember how to do it "properly" ... or maybe I just wanted to impress my 80+ year old family member? Quite a few years had passed since I really sat down to use it for more than a quick post-it note though, so I'm betting it too is something that diminishes in ease when you don't use it regularly.

I am glad though, that they're starting to make sure the quality of writing is emphasized in schools now, rather than how it looks. I know far too many people who lack proper grammar in their writing, and can't spell to save their life!
