This debate isn't going far enough. We should stop teaching to write both script and cursive. Laptops and smartphones for everyone!
Ha, yeah, I kinda feel that way. I hate writing by hand so much that I will always try to find a way to type instead.

I taught myself how to write the alphabet and sign my name in 9th grade, because your signature is pretty much literally the only time you'd ever need to write cursively. I promptly forgot how to write the alphabet in short order with the exception of the letters in my name. My penmanship in print lettering is outstanding, unrivaled even, so fuck cursive.
