The principal asked if anyone teaches cursive writing at our school. The third grade teacher does, but after they are done learning it she said most of the 3rd graders go right back to printing. The principal asked if anyone else ever requires students to use cursive on an assignment. No one does. The principal then asked why bother teaching cursive if no one is ever going to have students use it. What do you think? Does she have a point? or do you think we should teach cursive? Give me some reasons why if you have some. I think we should teach cursive, but don't have any real reasons for defending my decision. Help me out!
