Educators in one Wisconsin school district say there is less of a focus on penmanship as computer classes replace lessons on cursive. Some say that handwriting lessons are important to students' education, while others say that students receive the same benefit from typing. "I found this is an age of students who do not like paper," one teacher said. "They don't save it; they don't like to use it. ... We try to make them take notes, but they're not interested in anything that has to do with paper."
