The moment I heard that they might stop teaching cursive writing is schools, I stopped using it. I've not used cursive writing in years. I'd rather teach children positive mental attitude, or how to avoid internet scams, and not to believe anything in print or told the you on the news without checking the source.
I'd teach how to gain promotion on your merits, and not by attempts to slander your opponent.
There are heaps of more useful skills that are needed today than cursive. How often are most of us going to get to use cursive in a year? It sits there, redundant, along with algebra and French lessons (for an Australian) in my life. I'd put cursive writing into the optional arts.
Runs fast and ducks for cover...
