    How will they learn the difference between their, there, and they're? Watching this and other forums, it seems many who were (where, we're) taught didn't learn.

    About half of the schools here have stopped teaching it. They'll teach them to sign their name, but that's it. We're still teaching our kids though.

    Even if they never write a single word in cursive, they still need to know how to read it.

    For me...typing = 60 words per minute
    cursive = 20 completely illegible scribbles that only I can decode.
