According to the Indiana Department of Education, cursive is becoming obsolete.

In a memo sent to school leaders in the state, <a href="http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/07/06/typing-beats-scribbling-indiana-schools-can-stop-teaching-cursive/?hpt=hp_c2">it was recommended that schools stop teaching cursive,</a> and instead use that time to make its students more proficient in keyboard use.

<!--more-->If individual schools want to continue to teach cursive, they still can, although it's no longer required.

While it's tempting to make a quip about the confusions that's going to grip Indiana in about 20 years when everybody is signing their name with a "X," does anyone really think we're still be doing handwritten signatures in 20 years?
