#FeedbackFriday – Is cursive writing dead?

Our friends over at NJEA.org ran a poll to see if people thought children should be taught how to write in cursive in schools. Their question made us wonder, is cursive writing dead? In the age where everything is typed, is penmanship still a necessary art for us to teach in schools or an old practice that we can afford to do away with?

It’s #FeedbackFriday folks! So tell us what you think, tweet to @FranklinFDN with the hashtag or comment here on our blog or on Facebook. We’d love to hear what you think!
