I know how to read and write cursive and I can hardly read those documents.
Seriously, with the awful handwriting cursive inevitably gets us, I'm not so sure losing it is a bad thing.
On a side note if reading the documents of our founders is so important, why isn't english our national language? It should be imo..
I can't honestly remember being unable to read cursive. I think these are exaggerations, anyone who set their mind to it could do it easily enough, especially a child.

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.

Once I had a job where everyone was required to sign into a book and record the time we started work.
I never learned cursive numbers myself.

Just tell them it's a different font. The letters aren't so dissimilar that someone couldn't figure them out.
Well maybe except the weird Q and Z.
So we stop doing things because it is hard?

I promise, on this day, on this site, a vow.
I will slap the taste out of any morons mouth who ever says to me that they, "Can't do cursive."
Is it that it's hard? Is it that it requires practice?
I pity the future. "Idiocracy" is real.
