Teacher's sad to see cursive not taught

January 29, 2014 - Dear Editor,

In regards to "Writing tells the story, expert says," Jan. 8, I found this interesting and quite relevant.

I currently teach English at the community college level. Last week, I returned short essays to a group of freshman and they could not read the comments that I wrote on the essays, telling me "I can't read cursive."

I was a little taken back, sine I had made an effort to write as neatly as possible; however, the students had never been exposed to longhand in their previous educational environments. The things we do not teach, and, oh, the things we should.
