      This bothers me much more than Indiana dropping cursive from their curriculum!

        • The article doesn’t make sense to me. The school superintendent says that damage of the budget cuts is minimized - don’t they know the damage it will cause the students brain if they are unable to write. The article mentions that writing will still be required on AP and SAT tests - will the students do well on the tests if writing is eliminated?

          Removing essential curriculums will only hurt the children. DON‘T THEY GET IT!!!
