Sad and mostly true, I suspect.. not sure why we ever thought not teaching students to write down something *in their own handwriting* was not something they would need, in life.. Perhaps humans do not need to ever write anything down anymore, or read anyone else’s handwriting, now that we have *smartphones* 🙂

“But now I’m starting to think the problem isn’t simply my imprecise handwriting, but that some students can’t read cursive at all.”
