Cursive writing must not be lost art

For some time now, computers and keyboard skills have played an important part of our students' education, whether in the class room or in homework assignments.

Computer technology continues to move at a rapid pace throughout our world, and in the future success of our youth.

But cursive writing, as we all know from the early days of our own education, takes a different kind of hand coordination than just typing words on a computer keyboard. Many of our historical documents, such as the Declaration of Independence, are written in cursive. By adding cursive writing to our school district's daily curriculum, our students get an opportunity to fully comprehend the alphabet, and a clearer understanding of how each letter is formed.

Although our youth, as well as the rest of this hemisphere, is becoming more and more technology dependent, it is equally important that we retain a part of those classic writing skills into our daily curriculum.

Let us not forget the basic fundamental skills of the past as we work towards an outstanding future.
