BTN: HANDWRITING

This BTN story discussed the issues and concerns around cursive writing. Cursive Writing is starting to be believed as silly or has no meaning.  So many schools across Australia have began using computers more than writing. Finland has completely ditched cursive writing all across the country. NAPLAN is now having all their test on technology which some say could either increase or decrease the results of tests.

I wonder why so many,  many schools are getting rid of cursive writing because it decreases spelling, neatness and speed of writing. Those are just some of the reasons why cursive writing is important. By getting rid of cursive writing would mean that all of Nicolas Nicola’s effort would go to waist.
