Our kids cannot write in joined letters ,in addition to their poor grammar

Techdirt: Oh For Shame! Our Children Can’t Write Cursive!

 "For all of the many worries people have had over what computers are doing to our children, from making them fat to destroying their grammar to opening them up to cyberbullying, here’s one we never realized was such a big deal.There didn’t seem to be much of a need for cursive writing any more, as most communications was done via typed words. Non-cursive writing was perfectly fine for other situations.  It turns out that fewer and fewer kids are writing in script, even if they learned it in elementary school.  Some people claim that a lack of connecting letters stunts both learning and self-esteem: "Unless children learn to write legibly and at speed, their educational achievements may be reduced and their self-esteem affected."
