    Too close to the truth.

    ’Cursive ’ is not taught in the classroom anymore. Kids pick up cursive watching TV and listening to the big kids on the playground.
    .
    The same is pretty much true for Sex Ed.

    Here is a classic short story about the mathematics portion of today’s strip.



    Link to “The Feeling of Power” by Isaac Asimov

    It isn’t a long read. Remember, Asimov saw today coming back in 1958!!

    The lessons are faster.

    Cursive was necessary, in the days of quill pens — it greatly reduced the risk of making ink blots, compared to block lettering. Writing with cursive is faster than block lettering, even with ball-point pens. However, writing in cursive isn’t a very useful skill in the smartphone age.

    Cheating has always been necessary, it’s the only way some kids can get through school… and it teaches a valuable life skill. Not getting caught!

    I hear they don’t have to learn cursive any longer with the exception on how to write your own name. How sad.

    gonna make it hard to read some of the documents written in that age of quill pens and ink pots. like the declaration, the constitution. there are reasons to learn this skill, even in this age of smart phones. just sayin

    There was a news article several months ago about a 16-year old who cannot get a passport because he cannot write his name.

    Computer apps are marvelous. They allow you to waste time very efficiently.

    Cursive is just connecting the printed letters, with just a couple of changes.
    Or do they just learn the block letters?

    Eventually, it’ll just be icons (pictograms), and we will have moved backward by about 5000 years.
