Writing Things Out By Hand? Don’t Make Us LOL!

Here’s yet another way kids today have it easier than you or I could’ve ever dreamed.  You know, besides the fact that they don’t have to walk to school every day through ten miles of snow, uphill both ways.

More and more schools across the country are sparing kids the TORTURE of trying to learn cursive handwriting and are having them learn a FAR more practical communication skill instead:  Typing.

In fact, cursive has been dropped from the Common Core State Standards, which is a curriculum standard that’s used by 40 states.  In other words, cursive is going extinct.

–The reasons for focusing on typing over cursive are pretty obvious.  Kids already know regular, non-cursive handwriting, which is usually more legible on the papers they write.  And now, basically everything in schools is typed anyway.
