Thoughts on this? I've heard that some schools are foregoing teaching cursive to children at all. Which, personally, makes me sad. I am an avid journaller and I use a fountain pen, obviously my handwriting is nowhere NEAR as beautiful as this guy's, but I do make an effort because I think it's important, artful, and offers a more personal mature to my writing.

I think the same thing can be said about painting: it used to be core curriculum for many people (who could afford to 'waste' time studying instead of subsistence) ...

For everything crammed into any education, something is squeezed out. I don't think we'll be short of working artists anytime soon, even if a great many kids never learn to draw 'the right way' from some authority...
