Let us NEVER forget that some of the MOST important historical documents in the world are written in cursive. http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/07/Us_declaration_independence.jpg
Look at the reasons why these educators want this skill removed, then look at it again. Do you really want your children not to be able to read these documents in their original form? Cursive should not only be essential, it should be required. When we stop teaching something, the skill becomes lost forever. (INSERT THOUSANDS OF EXAMPLES HERE). If not in English, then at least in American History, If not there, then perhaps in Art. Don't let political clowns try to dictate to you what you should and shouldn't learn. Someone also tried that in WWII,.....what was his name again??? Oh yeah,..guess what, his side lost.
