When the author of my article realized that cursive was still being taught in schools, they were stunned. They mentioned that they have never used cursive in their life after school and come to think of it, I have not either. The most common uses of cursive, that I’ve noticed, is on fancy, cutesy tattoos. It was a nice thing to learn but essentially useless. This finding caused the author to wonder what other outdated practices that are still taught in school.
