While the emphasis today for our students is to be more technologically savvy, what is equally important is that cursive writing still needs to be taught in our schools.

It is important for students to not only use a computer keyboard but to also be able to write legibly and grammatically correct. There has not been nearly enough emphasis on writing skills in our schools. While it is easy to use a computer keyboard, it is not so easy to write in script or print.

Computers must never take the place of teacher instruction in our classrooms. While computers are and should be an integral part of classroom instruction, our teachers are the best form of educating our children, not computers. Teachers cannot and must not be replaced by technology.

Reader feedback

Correct from Queens says:
When kids think that LOL is a word, we have a big problem. People would rather be seen on You Tube doing something stupid than read a book. Now you can have an app read the book to you, so you can be a child forever. Disrespect is not a verb and never will be, but it is used as one by those too lazy to learn their own language.
