They've switched from teaching cursive writing to typing. It used to be offices commonly had secretaries to do all the typing, but this is the computer age and if you don't know how to type it's a serious disadvantage.

I'd say it's wrong to eliminate it. I do spend most of my work day on a computer, but I also manually write notes for myself and others as well. We're getting more and more technologically advanced, but I don't believe we've eliminated the need for cursive writing.

Cursive is important. If you have to follow someone around writing memos for your own benefit (like I did when I first started my job) and since most people don't study shorthand cursive is a lot faster than printing. I also make little memos all the time for things I am doing on a computer, it's a lot faster and easy to jot down a memo and have it right where you can see it instead of opening up wordpad or something to make or look at a memo in there.
