I had no idea that this was an issue but it seems that it is a dying art. The people that are getting the younger girl in our home asked for some help with her and getting to know her likes and dislikes and habits. She is really too young to have a bunch of this so I figured I would just do a short hand written note for them on the few things we do. I wrote it in cursive and they couldn't read it. Now my hand writing isn't the best so I didn't think much of it until the case manger pulled me to the side and said she had to rewrite it in block letters because they didn't read cursive. In fact she told me its not taught in schools anymore and most people under 30 can't do anything with it.

What the hell. I also found out that people don't recognize words written out anymore. That block letter text script of symbolic and abbreviated terms have replaced "long" form writing. Unreal. I get that generational differences are the norm but damn people.

Read? Usually, unless the handwriting is absolutely horrid.
Write? Yes, but I see no reason to write in cursive.
I was told all throughout elementary school that we were learning cursive because "you had to do it in high school and college" which is absolute bullPosted Image.

Yup, pointless though. Waste of time to be taught when time could be spent on other things. If it was taught in a art class fine

I once wrote a paper with cursive in college, I was told to rewrite it plainly, no Posted Image.

The dying art started in the classrooms, not so much the people.

There really is no point in cursive IMO.  It looks cool I guess.

Cursive is a dying art in most schools.  I hate to see it.  There is added value, I think, in reading and writing in cursive.

I think this was one reason it was taught,but no one writes anymore.

I remember typing classes in school were for girls,I reckon it would have been beneficial to have taken one now.

Yeah, I had heard they no longer teach cursive in schools. I think it's awful. Something that can be so beautiful i quickly becoming a lost art. But that's the way it often is. Beautiful is not much a part of everyday life anymore. Look at architecture, It has been gorgeous for centuries, but now everything is built from plastic instead of marble or brick or wood. I have a major horror of vinyl siding on houses and vinyl windows. I love natural building materials. natural fabric, too. Silks and cambric cottons. I hate synthetic stuff. It is shame that cursive is really quite a thing of the past.

Cursive was always for the womenfolk.  Once I got through sixth grade teachers didn't care what script was use, as long as it was legible.
