    What will happen when cursive is no longer taught in school

    Because of technology and technological advances, educators feel it is no longer necessary to teach cursive.  Some school districts no longer require the teaching of cursive.

    No one will know how to sign their name. Personally, I think it is a sad, sad day to stop teaching children how to write cursive.

    Regardless of a school still teaching cursive, my kids will still learn it through me. If schools stop teaching cursive in general, I feel like we might start seeing more of a dependence on technology. If we start to see more dependence on technology, I think the future is always possible where people forget how to do typical things (such as math) because they have had computers do it for them for countless years.

      I teach choir.  I talk to my students about when I was in high school.  They laugh and call it "back in the day."  I then tell them back in the day we san 4 to 6 part harmony without accompaniment and won first place in state festivals.

      I would definitely agree with the idea that kids have it easy in a lot of areas in comparison to what I had to do in high school. Yet, at the same time, I didn't take calculus in high school like my nephew is right now either.

      jason, I'm glad your nephew can handle it.  Calculus and stats are available at my school but a small percentage of students take them and pass them!  We have students taking two periods of math to try to come up to grade level.

      You have to wonder sometimes, at what point are we trying to force kids to do too much and not letting them live their childhood.

    The idea that we stop teaching in school is scary...I was taught cursive in school, and yet I have bad writing no matter how hard I try.   I am blessed with a keyboard now…
    I also cannot draw and lose at pictionary every time.

      I wonder if there will be at least one keyboard in every home.  Those of us who have them would be surprised to know of students who do not have computer acceass at home.

    Cursive shouldn't be forgotten if not taught at schools parents should take the time to teach at home.
