I know I can write in cursive but aside from signing my name and maybe on the sporadic check, I never use it. I never really thought it hurt to learn it but I guess there are schools in the Capital Region that don't teach it anymore and it's causing problems.
I'll admit, I was a nerdy kid in school, I loved homework. Math homework was like a giant logic puzzle to me, Spanish was a way to learn a language I could speak that my Mother couldn't and Science was a way to look at the world differently than usual. Apparently, though, homework these days is worse than I remember and a mom decided to do something about it.
