A very interesting radio interview on the subject! Just click on the title above to go to the webpage, then click on 'Listen'.

    I heard some of the interview, and read some comments. I won't disagree with folks, such as lefties, who were tortured while learning cursive; or teachers who're stuck with state mandates that cut the handwriting curriculum; or others who've found good reasons to modify the importance of handwriting for personal use.

    I'll defer to experts, but, still, is it at all difficult to imagine a headline in the 2020s: "U. S. Student Skills Decline; Handwriting-Cognition Link Examined"? Is it at all difficult to imagine that we'll pay some price for emphasizing keyboarding over cursive? Does anyone fully believe that keyboarding has given, say, the past generation of students an overall greater robustness of thought and quality of expression? Jack/Youngstown
