Since the1990s, American schools have deemphasized cursive writing skills. As of 2013, the majority of states had dropped all requirements that students learn cursive writing. Further, the Common Core standards do not mention cursive writing; instead, they focus heavily on computer keyboarding skills. A Harris interactive poll in June 2013 revealed that 79 percent of adults and 68 percent of children, ages 8 to 18, who were surveyed believed that cursive writing should be taught. Nearly half of the adults surveyed and over one-third of the youths also responded that learning to read and write in cursive improves literacy.
