My boys haven't been taught cursive. (I think Noah might have gotten some cursive lessons, but it was minimal if that.) When it comes time to sign their names, they're just going to be writing out their names, not "signing in cursive."

On one hand, I see the reasoning behind this. Cursive is used less and less in society with the advent of computers and there's so much that schools need to teach. On the other hand, I feel like it's a basic skill that's being tossed aside - especially when it often feels like they're tossing a lot aside just to prep for standardized tests that don't really measure anything.
