As we all know, "school" is not the same as when many of us were growing up. A lot of schools don't even teach cursive anymore, with the excuse that the "digital generation" shouldn't need it.
On the other hand we are still asked "sign your name"...at the pharmacy, when packages need a "signature", when using a credit card, when renewing your car registration... Is printing your name okay? Probably, if that is what is on file...
A recent research study was conducted at the University of California - Merced campus regarding how the body "involuntarily reacts" when reading a printed page vs. a hand written page. It's quite interesting, and is included in the "Worth Reading" page of our user group.
But, just for fun, let's take a vote. (Press a button!)
Do you think children should be taught to read and write cursive?
We'll let you know the results in a future email.
