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.

I haven't used cursive since I learned it, so when I do try to write in cursive it looks like a nine-year-old's handwriting. o_o

But if we hadn't covered it in school I wouldn't be able to decipher my grandparents' birthday cards, so I'm okay with it in general. From what I can tell a lot of people's handwriting settles into some middle ground between printing and cursive, so it makes sense to know both. Some percentage of people are obviously going to string letters together when they write anyway, so there may as well be a standard system to start from.
