I know we've had discussions here before about the state of cursive writing in the US. Apparently the same holds true in Britain. I thought you guys might like to see this article from the UK that predicts our grandchildren might not even be able to read cursive. (My 13yo ds already has trouble reading it!)

Interesting! Thanks for the link. Count me as one who thinks they need cursive, should write drafts by hand before typing them, and should practice reading and writing cursive through notes, letters and invitations etc.
