So most people may or may not be shocked that the art of cursive will no longer be taught in school. This bothered me.. This bothered me quite a bit that I lay in bed at night thinking,
How will this affect our future? How is this beneficial? Who will it hurt?
and ULTIMATELY.. WHO will it benefit??
Although I can see that time in the class room Could be more wisely spent on things other than the ancient art of penmanship.. Typing has become the way of America.. the way of the Future.
This concerns me.. and I don't feel like typing these concerns all night, but how long will it be before we no longer teach our children how to SPELL, because computers will spell it for us? But here is my main concern.. Back to the question WHO will this benefit?? I think I can say it simply with one picture..
WHO WILL BE ABLE TO READ THIS IN 80 YEARS??
WHO WILL BENEFIT IF AMERICANS CANNOT READ THIS??
IF EVERYTHING IS LEFT TO TRANSLATION BY THOSE "SPECIALLY" TRAINED TO READ CURSIVE.. HOW EASILY CAN THE TRUTH BE CHANGED??
NO MORE CURSIVE?
WHO MADE THAT DECISION ANYWAY??
