Should Schools Still Teach Cursive?

Should Schools Still Teach Cursive? | Education Blog | Scoop.it
The decline in teaching cursive handwriting, the rise of the keyboard, and the introduction of the Common Core State Standards that do not require children to know cursive all question its relevance.

I recently had a conversation about the relevance of teaching cursive handwriting in schools. What do you think?

Jennifer Shackles's comment, July 9, 2013 11:22 AM
How can students read "primary" historical documents if we have generations who cannot read cursive? Only linguists will be able to. How do these students "write" and "sign" their names on official documents? It may not need to be stressed as it once was, but I think it is still a necessary skill.

Cursive is very important because is helps develop motor skills. It's not just about pretty penmanship.
