I find cursive hard to read, even "well written" cursive. Reading old letters is like deciphering a foreign language.
If the first and most important part of writing is readability, then why add in a whol eload of loops to obfuscate it?
My grades in high school leaped when I was allowed to stop using cursive and start using print.
I doubt there's a relationship between grades and cursive/print...both can be legible or illegible. Neither do I believe cursive is hard to read.
You say you find Cursive hard to read, but you 'stopped' using cursive in high school. So how did you write it in the first place?
The sole reason of using cursive (and loops) is that it increases speed without sacrificing legibility. I believe Cursive has a higher wpm limit where it starts to become illegible as compared to print.
