Changing Times and Fonts

My third grade teacher Mrs. Mitchell regularly made me stay after school to practice cursive on her chalkboard. And I’m pretty sure that my capital Qs are as illegible today as they were then. But does that matter anymore? That’s a question facing many educators. Keyboarding has replaced handwriting in the core curriculum, but several states are trying to get cursive back into the classroom. (In fairness to Mrs. Mitchell, my typing class didn’t go much better.)
