That’s the question taken up at Wired’s GeekDad blog.  My third-grader gets weekly “homework” which is supposed to teach her cursive writing.  I am sure that a lot of time is being wasted.  But I am not sure that it’s cursive that should go.  Handwritten text is losing its practical purpose, so if we are going to retire something, perhaps the fancy stuff should surive.
