& reviewed, it will be an interesting situation when an employee can
not read the cursive writing. 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.
Mandatory at my baby school . I was shock the district ask Third grade to write in cursive . Thank God India ace the challenge . Now she must write everything in cursive entering the Fourth grade .

People are forgetting that school is meant to develop, not just only learn things that are 100% useful.  Script writing is a developmental tool as well.

for the people that want to regain their cursive writing skills, this is an article from yesterday on Business Insider with helpful tips:

http://www.businessinsider.com/tips-to-improve-handwriting-2014-7

Thanks to computers and tablets, good handwriting seems less important than ever.

But handwriting is an important developmental skill, and your handwriting says a lot about you.

We spoke with calligraphy expert Laura Hooper of Laura Hooper Calligraphy, a calligraphy expert who offers handwriting classes in cities around the country. Hooper shared seven tips to help anyone improve his handwriting.

It's mandatory in my kids school, as well.
 
I think good penmanship is important. I hate seeing an adult write in cursive like a second grader.

I write for a living and I've yet to encounter any use for writing cursive.
