Cursive writing isn’t a lost skill at the Las Cruces Academy. Head of School Lou Ellen Kay teaches cursive to students in 1st grade and up. They can then take notes more rapidly than by printing, they can read historic documents, and they can develop personal, readable signatures. At the same time, they learn science; each sheet has an astronomical theme!
We had a recent comment from Sharon White on Facebook – a bank teller couldn’t read cursive on the amount of a check; this problem is growing. We hope to be a small part of the solution.
