Indiana’s elementary students will no longer be required to perfect the looping script of cursive handwriting.
It’s a sad day (if you ask an old person like me).
Starting this fall, the Indiana Department of Education will no longer require public schools to teach cursive.
Instead, students will be expected to become proficient in keyboard use (like keyboards will be around in 10 years).
As someone who makes a second living off writing(?) a second rate blog about nothing, I know this is the way the world is heading.
But it makes me sad.
I can remember the sense of accomplishment I felt when I learned how to make a cursive S.
I don’t remember feeling the same sense of accomplishment when I typed my first S.
