So I went to a Civil War re-enactment a couple of years ago in Channahon, Illinois. The guy dressed as Abraham Lincoln was doing a discussion and he asked a kid in the front row to read a letter that he pulled out of his jacket pocket. The kid looked at it and said:
"I can't read Cursive."
Congratulations Teachers - the next generation of children won't be able to READ any of the documents of the history of the United States. It will be a Foreign Language.

What’s the point of cursive anyway?
Speed. How does anybody write quick notes to themselves by painstakingly writing one letter at a time?
Even the Egyptians had a cursive form of hieroglyphics, for the same reason.

Priorities, I guess. I'm not sure you can "expose" a kid to cursive without the drills. Remember that? Remember the charts above the blackboard? Remember blackboards? Remember chalk dust?
