LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Cursive writing shouldn't be lost in education

Wednesday, March 14, 2012 | 6:00 a.m. CDT

To think that when I have children they might attend an elementary school that does not put an emphasis on cursive writing bewilders me. My biggest concern is that the shift into a "digital era" will soon make basic learning concepts and skills taught in elementary schools things of the past, and total reliance will be put upon machines that can think for children.
