Can you read and write in cursive?

Can you?

I'm finding it worrisome how many adults can not read nor write in cursive. My 9 year old can read and write in cursive and has been able too since she was about 7.

If you can't, how do you sign your name?

I can write in cursive. I choose to write in manuscript.  I do sign my name in cursive.

LOL yes, but I'm old. I heard they aren't teaching cursive in school anymore. Is that true?

Yes. I can, but I went to catholic school. My friends that went to public can only print.

Sure can. My sister is in 1st grade and they are no longer teaching cursive at her school...which I find weird.
