Thanks for that, whoa! (is that a word now..? Yep, just googled it, whoa - 1. To express surprise (interj) 2. To express astonishment(interj) 3. To
indicate a desire for one to end that of which they are speaking (interj) ...
anyway, I think the question was this - what lettering style ARE they teaching them, if not cursive? Is it block lettering, or just whatever suits
their fancy as long as they spell it right? Or does THAT even matter any more.. not by the looks of mainstream articles on CNN which apppear to be
written by 20 something's who did just well enough it would seem to try to appear
to write intelligently.
Even the title of the OP makes it sound like it's something old fashioned and no longer in use, but if that weren't strange enough, we don't even know
WHAT they're being taught except to "go digital" which scares me half to death when I think about it, given what they've probably got cooking over at
Google and the NSA!
Someday soon, a child will be born, not to write beautiful ideas beautifully, but simply to serve the state, and Facebook and Twitter, saying nothing
of any real meaning or significance, just abbreviated acronyms like, WTF?!
First we forget how to use proper speach, then how to write, then finally, how to think for ourselves, critically.
Not a happy day for freedom, and for the latent, as yet largely untapped genius of the human being come of age.. is it?
It's like some sort of psychological war, where on the one hand you have people like me and so many others (and many if not most here at ATS), calling
us all to aim for the very best of the best in each and every person, and on the other hand, the strong desire by the PTB to dumb everyone down as

may very well employ computer networks and a screen and keyboard on every desk if that's what it takes) - it WILL lose it's potioning in the world,
&/or become a very dangerous entity, if not for our collective physical wellbeing, then for our very sanity, and thus for our eternal souls! - that's
what the state/corpratocracy ultimately wants, mindless slaves typing acroyms at one abother about celebrity gossip. Oh no!
Future kids, as adults, will swint and squirm as they try desperately to write, on a mere piece of paper, intelligable words, just like the
illiterates of today, but what's worse is when they hand it over to you to read, and there you see the scratchings of a three year old child with the
intellect to match!
Let us weep now for that day, that it may never come to pass. If only it hadn't already appeared rushing headlong at us like a Mack Truck out of a
long, dark tunnel.
We, THIS generation, the one's who write in curcive, we see it, but they do not. In fact, they might be the drugged out, mindless trucker at the
