lol, just thought about this... What's the point? We read books in print, we type in print (if you're not using special characters or programs), we write in print for paper work and such.... so why do we need to learn to write in cursive and why do we even need to write in cursive?
If no-one had ever started writing in cursive we could all sign our names in print. We still have unique writing styles anyhow. Styles unique to us, and people who forge documents can either trace a cursive signature or do something else.
Maybe it's a dumb thought.... but it crossed my mind, lol.

I wonder the same. I had to teach it when I taught 3rd, and honestly only dedicated like 20 minutes a week to it. It just wasn't an important part of the curriculum to me. We had computers in the classroom for one. If my kids were not typing, I preferred my students to print written work, so I could read it. Hell, some of them needed to perfect their print, which made cursive very frustrating to them. I myself NEVER, EVER write in cursive. I think the last time I did I was in 5th grade. I only sign my name.

I write in cursive all the time. I'm working on a story right now and can't always sit at my computer to write so I do it long hand...in cursive. Cursive is much faster than printing (although I type faster than I write by hand).
