Schools Not Teaching Cursive Writing

41 States Don't Require Students to Learn Cursive

Just print your John Hancock here. It may sound funny, but given the current educational standards across the US, few tots may know how to sign their name by the time they graduate from high school. To date, 41 states have adopted the Common Core State Standards for English, a new set of standards students are expected to learn before graduation, which doesn't include cursive writing. Though 71 percent of LilSugar readers believe that script should still be taught, more states are removing it from their curriculum as they aren't assessed on kids' ability to use it, and there is more of a focus on learning the QWERTY keyboard. States like California and Massachusetts have added the longhand style of writing back into their schools, but Georgia will make a decision when administrators meet in March.

If your school doesn't require students to learn cursive, would you teach your children?
