I've always been against cursive... if you want your story to look beautiful go draw a picture because your confusing me with your indistinguishable lettering
Well, it was supposed to be faster than printing, but you need to be a bit artistic to make it readable. I was never very good at it, but you make a point.
I'm in my late 30s. I was tought cursive in 3rd grade.
I'm really glad they dont teach cursive anymore. Everyone I talk to that learned cursive now writes in a half print / half cursive mix match of letters.
Cursive has no real purpose that I can see, it's just a waste of time and confusing to kids having just learned how to write letters.
When I tell people this, they say "What about signing your name?" To this I say: People can still write their name on a line and maybe other people will actually be able to read signatures now that they're not scribbled down in 'cursive'.
I argued this with people who say it's for security reasons that you sign instead of print... however the monstrosities that are digital signatures makes both forms pointless... and I feel nobody checks anyway
