No More Teaching of Joined up Writing

Thinking of all the adults I know who, in spite the teaching, have nothing that could properly be called handwriting. Lovely handwriting is art - some people are not so good at art. And it doesn't follow that artists all have lovely writing either, because it's not exactly a creative outpouring when you scribble your signature, take notes at lectures or leave that vital post-it note on a colleague's desk.

Nice handwriting is a kind of tidy, housewifely art. It's not a stroke of genius, but it does look good. There may be one disadvantage, should the world and all its keyboards be destroyed suddenly. Thousands of people will not have an efficient way to record their thoughts. But it's likely they would be worried about other things.
