    • I remember I had penmanship class in elementary school. I was proud that I could print well and write in cursive neatly. These days you see a lot of messy handwriting.

    • They did teach cursive writing in Warren County Public Schools out in the country!  I was rather surprised.  But now we moved back to Norther Virginia, I don’t think they teach cursive writing.  I did learn cursive in grade school.

      I remember my signature and my mom’s signature being very close, almost identical.

    • I was amazed and annoyed when I found out nobody was really teaching my children cursive writing in school. And my kids go to a school where there are less than 20 kids in a classroom.  

       My oldest daughter, I tried to teach at home.  The other two, I decided there was no point.  

       REally in today’s computer oriented world, it’s kind of pointless.  It truly is a lost art, and people who are interested in lost arts will always learn it.  

      I look at people my own age who had penmanship class in school and still can’t write legibly, so really what was the point.  Printing is usually much neater and really the only thing neccessary anymore.
