Does Your Seventh Grader Really Need Cursive?

If you remember back when you were in school, chances are good that you recall learning cursive. Once you had “mastered” printing (does anyone every really master handwriting?), it was time to move on to cursive. This seems to be a dying art these days though. More and more public schools are cutting cursive from their curriculum to focus on things like typing. Is it important that your kids learn it? These days, it’s probably not that vital. They should know how to read it, but there is little reason for cursive to be a huge part of your homeschool curriculum unless you just want it to be.
So…how many homeschoolers out there still want it to be? :)
