Is cursive handwriting obsolete?

This made us chuckle this morning, but then we started thinking. . . . is cursive handwriting obsolete? Are the days of handwritten thank you notes really long gone?

What do you think of the great handwriting debate? Is cursive writing a lost art that needs to be resurrected in our educational system or an obsolete skill that is no longer needed?

  1. I think it is still necessary & should be taught! We are actually using a cursive first curriculum (I’m a homeschooler).
    I feel like this is some science fiction movie debate…. The year is 2065 & the rebel forces are raging against the computers who have taken over the world… If only they could find someone who could read or write in cursive… SMH.
