Have You Heard About the Cursive Controversy?

To summarize, many public and private schools are eliminating cursive instruction from their curriculum. The pro-elimination school of thought is that cursive writing is becoming obsolete due to the prevalent use of technology and therefore should not consume instructional/classroom time. Many parents and teachers feel that removing cursive instruction from the curriculum is a mistake. The con-removal school of thought is that our children still need to be able to read cursive writing and that internationally cursive writing is more commonly used in business and communication.
