Cursive handwriting has made the New York Times’ Room for Debate section! You can find the varying view points here.
While some argue that research shows it’s better for your brain or your fluency to learn cursive, and others argue that the research is untrue, I was encouraged by the general assertion in most of the opinions that handwriting (print or cursive) is still important in our technologically-saturated world.
And the comments section was full of people who thought that even if it seemed old fashioned or a dying art, that cursive is one of those things that are worth preserving in our education system. I whole heartedly agree!
