I struggled with Penmanship in grade school, but gradually improved. My Dad had much better hand writing than I ever achieved - and he could switch hands in the middle of a sentence and you couldn't tell the difference. Unfortunately, none of us kids inherited that.

I have complained for years that schools never taught kids about handling money. I was pleased to find out that our local schools now have on-going classes to teach kids to handle money; the classes start in 2nd grade and continue through high school.

I had problems with my third grade teacher, who didn"t like me. One of the problems was with penmanship. She wanted us to write with lots of flourishes and fancy curli-cues, which seemed stupid to me. My cursive writing was and is very readable, but is much simpler and faster than what that teacher wanted. She gave me the only D I ever got on a report card. For penmanship.

No other teacher ever complained about how I wrote.

Is cursive writing necessary in primary school now? I don"t know if it is worth spending a whole lot of time on. But kids should be able to read and write cursively. Oh but wait! Lots of kids come out of primary school unable to read or write printing.

Schools need to figure out how to do better.

I think this is a great idea,but I'm afraid it won't be too many years until we see the demise of money. With online banking-credit cards -debit cards is getting used less every day.I know people that carry no cash at all.
