Regarding the letter to the editor published in the December 4, 2013, issue of the Valley Record by Mr. Joe Monahan of Fall City, I must respectfully disagree. As a parent of a first grader I find it frustrating to discover that cursive is still being taught at all. I can’t think of any formal instruction that could better waste the time and effort of students and teachers. Any and all instruction time currently allotted toward cursive writing would be much better spent teaching keyboarding skills.
