Cursive Handwriting Is Obsolete

It is time that we finally stop teaching cursive handwriting in schools. It deserves no place in the curriculum. What is the point of taking up so much valuable time in teaching a skill that will not be used. Instead, why not get serious about making sure children develop effective touch typing skills?

How many schools in Maine still require that cursive writing be taught?
