I seem to be the only one in Maryland asking how are the next generation off adults going tobe able to sign their name later in life when asked for their signature when they can't read or write in cursive. My son in 2nd grade last year kept seeing things I had on my desk and asked me mommy can you teach me cursive and I said I'll try and in 3rd grade you'll learn it in class. Well guess what now he's in that class & I find out their is no more cursive handwriting just print. I asked my neice who is in high school and she said she can't read it but can write her name. The teacher at my son's school said do to the pressure of test passing they did away with handwriting. Now I no why the kids write so sloppy I work at an elementary school and the writing is hard to read its that sloppy with a few exceptions. I was just wanting to know if all states are done with cursive/handwriting class? I learned cursive & passed test.Answer Question

Yes, my daughter started later than we did but yes they did learn hand writing. If you are worried make him practice writing at home. There are books and dry erase boards that work very well to help. Just because you don't need it on a test to pass doesn't mean it isn't an important skill to have. I would push it with the PTA or PTO and the state school board. Keep going up until you get heard.
