Children learning cursive.

What strikes me as I view the video, is that something which was so normal to teach a couple of decades ago, has become a novelty.  Although the children are not aware of the significance of learning cursive writing, those of us in the world of educational and cognitive psychology, neuroscience, education, are increasingly aware of the need for children to learn cursive despite the technology surrounding us.  To remove the teaching of cursive from schools before thorough study of the impact on learning, is reckless and premature and robs our children of valuable skills.
