Educators say cursive, waning against the presence of technology, again is taking a back seat as more states implement the Common Core State Standards. Debe Terhar, president of the State Board of Education in Ohio, is among those questioning whether more should be done to preserve cursive, saying a lack of knowledge about cursive could restrict students later in life and limit their ability to read documents such as the Declaration of Independence. Others say cursive helps with the development of fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and other brain and memory functions.
