Cursive Mandatory in Elementary Schools in North Carolina

Standard

Sorry about the delay people! I’m back from my trip now. I wanted to update while I was away, but it became troublesome on my phone. 😦 So here we go!

I am all for learning how to write our language. I believe it’s important. Cursive, however is not. It’s cool if someone wants to learn it on their own time, but their time could be put to better use at a school.  The time learning to write in cursive in addition to printing (which is the favorable way to write) they could be using that time to learn another language. The younger you are the easier it is to learn that. Everyone knows this. Why do we have to wait until high school / college to learn a language when by then it has become something foreign. Not to mention a lot of people have lost the will to learn by that time. Give the option to elementary schools. It’s such a shame how pointless schools can be sometimes.
