Reading cursive beneficial
Given the debate over the instruction in cursive writing in N.C. schools, we should realize ending it does have implications, often serious and consequential.
In testimony given in the George Zimmerman trial, Rachel Jeantel admitted that she cannot read cursive writing and that someone else wrote the letter she supposedly wrote to Trayvon Martin’s mother about what she allegedly heard on her phone. Jeantel could not read anything other than her name and the words “thank you.”
Elimination of teaching cursive writing is not as innocuous as we are led to believe. Enough said.
