ArkAngel: I learned cursive in grade school and haven't used it for anything except a signature in years. What's the point?
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./get.... off my lawn?
Cyberluddite: Indiana Bill doesn't know jackshiat about this topic. Wake me when Michigan Steve or Wisconsin Tom weigh in on the issue.
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.
vartian: ArkAngel: I learned cursive in grade school and haven't used it for anything except a signature in years. What's the point?This. Maybe they can teach buggy whip manufacturing next. Plus, we'll have a secret code against all those farking kids.
BarkingUnicorn: Do schools still teach typing, or are kids assumed to pick that up on their own?
Donnchadha: There's a reason why he's not as well known as his cousin Jones.
