Letter to the editor: Is cursive not taught nationwide?

By MARY MICHAELS | Holmen

The lack of teaching cursive writing is not just local. I recently sent a letter to my 16-year-old granddaughter who lives south of Milwaukee. Her 25-year-old sister had to read it to her. After that, I checked with the following people: daughter in Alabama, grandson in Florida, friend in southern Iowa, and niece in Tennessee. All said cursive is not being taught at their schools. Is it nationwide?
