What are your thoughts about cursive writing?

I've always written cursive and finding it's becoming a lost art. Too bad that it's losing it's place in the schools, how do you feel about it?

  • My son is learning it in PreK. I think it is a good skill to have and think it is sad that so many kids won't even know how to sign their name.

  • It's taught in my daughter's school. But, I agree. If I am writing in my journal, I always use cursive because there's more thought coming from brain to pen.

  • I loved learning it in school I wish they still did at all schools , my brother never correctly learned how . I work at a bank and when I ask some customers to sign there names I thought everyone knew cursive but I was wrong .

  • I think it's antiquated. It is pretty, but I don't see the point in teaching it anymore.

  • Our schools all still teach it, and when I write everything is a mix of writing and print (my own special blend)... But seeing how most people don't write things any more, I don't see why it needs to be the priority it used to be...

  • I always use cursive.  Personally I find it a lot easier on my hand and wrist because it flows so smoothly.
