The Real Shocker Here Is That Schools Are Teaching Any Kind Of Handwriting

"Across North Carolina and in dozens of other states, teachers are committing what once would have been heresy: They are writing off cursive script."
—What are they going to cancel next, semaphore class? Introduction to phrenology? This is an OUTRAGE. How will the youth be able to properly express the sentiment "SEXT U L8R LOL" to one another if not in cursive?

It took me five years easy to teach myself how to write in other than cursive.

Abandoning cursive is part of forgetting history, thus making it easier for the State to rewrite it when necessary. Congratulations to all! Doubleplusgood!

@Anarcissie The problem comes when they get rid of pens.

@hershmire: First, they came for the mechanical pencils. And I was like, "Fine, take 'em, those things are annoying anyway."

@Anarcissie What you really need to worry about is when they stop teaching you to be able to use your eyeballs. Once braincasts are the only form of communication, I'll start getting concerned.
