As more school districts drop or cut back on cursive instruction, no longer required by Common Core curriculum standards adopted in 46 states including New Jersey, we asked readers whether they thought the writing was on the wall for script.

According to the survey:

• 85.1 percent of respondents said schools shouldn’t ditch cursive writing, and that it’s a necessary life skill.

• 14.9 percent said schools should ditch cursive writing, and that it’s unnecessary with today’s technology and other educational standards students now have to meet.
