    especially increased class size and teaching to tests (even in grade school) have made teaching things like cursive writing a luxury. If you go to a good suburban school or a private school, you'll probably still learn it these days, but if you go to a school in a less affluent setting and are under the thumb of "school reform" as it is now practiced then it's printing and keyboarding that you'll be taught.

    It is a bad thing, both because it decreases writing speed and because it makes too much of our history inaccessible in its original form. I think it's a poor decision too, not only for our schools but for our democracy ni general.
