ArkAngel: I learned cursive in grade school and haven't used it for anything except a signature in years. What's the point?


Exactly. Everyone knows that anything that does not apply to ArkAngel's life is totally unnecessary.

nekom: They don't already?  Has that much changed, they don't teach cursive script in school these days?  This is news to me, and I was born in 1980.

I was born only a few years before you, and it was taught to me. Thing is, I can't think of a single time I've used it in 15-20 years. Unless you count my signature - but even that's just a squiggly line more than actual cursive. For that matter, I think the only time I even write with a pen is to sign a receipt or draw dicks on a passed out friend's forehead. Even my ransom notes aren't hand-written anymore.

Requiring cursive to be taught seems like a waste of time better allocated to actually understanding the language.

Cursive loses something when it's not written in its original Klingon.

Mija: I write in cursive. When I see someone printing I tend to think of them as poorly educated and barely literate. I cannot imagine not being able to read cursive at all. People should also be required to type properly before graduating high school. I taught myself to type the correct way with home keys and all.

I see a generation of young people who think so highly of themselves yet they can't type or read cursive. Sad. The public school system is so broken.


I was going to type 0/10, but then I realized I think you may be serious, so like... 8/10.

Indiana Bill hated Mexicans. And he was half-Mexican.

I'm not sure I want to know what kind of secret code you came up with that involves buggy whips.

CSB:

Indiana (Gary, no less) is where I learned cursive, in the late 60s.

I was still getting up to speed with it a year later, when I was in a Social Studies class led by a teacher whose overhead-projector notes were (1) text-blocks of dense serial-killer-style margin-to-margin scrawls, (2) ANY random sentence could be vital info on the next test, and (3) you'd only have about 30 seconds to decipher & write down the whole thing before he'd change to the next one.

Indiana taught me cursive... and then drove me right back to (faster) printing.

Which is what my handwriting still is (in a fairly evolved style), to this day.

BarkingUnicorn: Do schools still teach typing,  or are kids assumed to pick that up on their own?


Typing will be just as obsolete as cursive in a few short years...
