As a new school year begins, many children will be returning to classrooms filled with brand new computers, tablets and other tools essential to prep students for life in a plugged-in world. But as schools go high-tech, the move may spell the end for cursive writing. 

The Common Core State Standards, a set of national benchmarks for American public schools, do not require students to learn cursive.
