A debate is underway when it comes to handwriting standards in many schools in the country. People want to see cursive handwriting make a comeback whenever possible. Fortunately, instructors are working to teach students the basics of cursive handwriting. That bodes well for the future of cursive in the modern world too.

If you don’t know cursive, you won’t be able to read even the preambles of the founding documents of your country.

The benefits of cursive versus non-cursive handwriting are under debate in many school districts.
