I wrote a letter in cursive to a friend in the UK and he ain't know wtf it was at first glance .... He said it was nice looking but it took him while to read it due to the "connected letters".


I love cursive.

Im sure that there will be college professors writing in cursive for a few more decades that will flunk a student if they can not read it.

Invitations will be in cursive and so many adults will not be able to read them...

I'll betcha that elite private schools are and will continue teaching cursive. Dont sit back and let your kids get handicapped. Teach them cursive yourself while they are young.

they're not lol

Might as well stop teaching it.

A friend had to write a paragraph in cursive for the GRE terms of agreement not to cheat about 2 years ago. Super smart guy but he was so lost and had to chicken scratch he way through it lol.

I think it is best that the younger generation at least learn to read in cursive because many employers are of an older generation.

What if your boss wrote you a handwritten note.......what are you going to do.......go to your boss and say "I can't read"......

He wrote his name on the chalk board and I just remember thinking that in the future, people won't be able to write that nicely. Made me feel kinda sad

I once had a job where a lot of stuff was really confidential and the CEO didnt want us to email certain things.... At any given time, we would be away from our desk and would leave each other hand written notes like 'see if xyz did abc and if he didnt do wxyz'. My department manager's notes were always in cursive and she was not especially old. Imagine a person that is a new hire that is ofthe younger generation gets the time sensitive note and can not read it...Ouch
