but isn't writing faster and more efficient than typing?
Not if you're even just somewhat proficient at typing.
This is true. It took them about 15 years worth of students to realize....when the first couple batches graduated....that they'd actually made a horrible mistake by emphasizing computers over written words. It was an "Oh (bleep)" moment when newly minted adults couldn't sign legal documents because they didn't know how to sign their names.
I can see that. While in Navy boot camp, I was one of the few who knew cursive so I was put in charge of teaching everyone how to write out their uppercase, cursive initials. It was an extremely painful process.
But the way it is today, all they really need to know are the letters in their own name. Teach them how to write their cursive signature and intials and that should suffice honestly.
