I learned today that cursive is no longer going to be taught in our schools. Thank you very much, common core...not.
Cursive is an art. It brings connection of thoughts. Without it, one will never be able to read the writings of the founding fathers, grandma and grandpa's love letters, Mom's recipes, and so much more I am not able to think of right now.
Common core has some good points to it but it is going too far too fast. My niece is a teacher. When she and her fifth grade teaching colleagues took the practice tests, they each came up with different answers to the math questions. Oh, by the way, my niece is certified to teach math.
