The Quint: Cursive Writing Makes A Comeback In NY Schools, Kids are Lovin’ It

Elementary school classrooms in New York City are bringing in cursive handwriting instruction back into curriculum. Jessica Geller, Principal, Henry Gradstein Elementary School said: “We brought cursive writing back because we felt it was important for the whole child to learn just like we brought back chess and ballroom dancing to help kids with their whole education.”
“It also helps with spelling accuracy so it may not be used actually in the real world necessarily but it helps with their spelling skills and their writing skills now at this age,”Geller added.
