I think that cursive is a HUGE waste of time for not only me but my whole school!!! And do you know how hard it is to be pushed around by my teachers ALL THE TIME No you don't know... all you hear is &quot;Ouch... my hands HURT!!!&quot; And all cursive is is a bunch of swirly letters THAT NO ONE CAN READ!!! And we never get the chance to say &quot;no I don't want to!!!&quot; and if we do then our answer is... &quot;well it's not a want to it's a have to!:)&quot; from my teachers. I never got the chance to express my feelings about anything... and by the time I did it was to late and I was yelling at everyone. And now I get the chance to do that !!! And I hope that every one will be very kind to me and help me STOP CURSIVE NOW!!! It's poisoning the children's mind and we children DON'T LIKE IT!!! We have to do a book on cursive about like and inch or two THICK!!! I personally think it's a BIG WASTE OF TIME. IT SHOULD BE BANNED FROM SCHOOLS NATION WIDE!!! Us kids we never ask for much, and we also don't get much. So all I ask is that YOU BAN CURSIVE FOREVER!!! :) I never thought it would come to have to go THIS FAR. But you know what right now it's all worth it to me :D I always thought that I would just LOVE cursive. You know what it WAS FUN. But not for very long! We never got asked. It should be a choice... NOT A DEMAND!!! You should never question kids authority... Kids have really great power... they just realize to late... So I beg of you STOP CURSIVE NOW!!!
