This generation of high schoolers never learned how to write in cursive and may have never actually been able to tell time on a clock. What I don’t understand is how schools expect us to know how to write checks or to sign off certain documents for work or other important activities as adults. 

“Writing in cursive is faster and it allows you to answer things in a faster speed then people who just use print, so I think people need to learn to write cursive in school,” Abby Visalli (20’) said.

Most schools try to teach us “kids” about how checks and balances work with a business called Enterprise Village. However, kids that learn this at a young age are more likely to forget and to not really see the true meaning behind it. They might try to understand what they are learning, but they might not fully comprehend what is going on. They might try to get it, but they might truly not understand the concept.

Students who are 16 and getting their license don’t know how to write in cursive, which means that they have to either print their name on the signature line, or figure out on their own or through a parent how to sign their name in cursive.  

“Teachers have so many other concepts to teach that it makes it difficult to be able to teach cursive,” Gregory Said.

The problem with the lack of knowledge about cursive is that most students don’t know how to read it at all. Of course we all get cards from family members and at times it might be in print, but at other times it’s written in cursive form. People could often get frustrated at this idea because it would seem like people are writing in code and trying to say something else when they really aren’t.

So, I believe in order for kids to understand what is going on in the world and to figure out different ways to write and think, we should be able to write cursive in school.
