Growing up, I had a pretty strange relationship with cursive writing.
This will likely sound familiar to many of you, but in the third and fourth grade, my teachers not only taught us cursive, but made it clear that literally everyone will expect us to use it when we get older.
While I can't really recall if I was still using by fifth grade, I do know that after that, almost no teacher cared whether I used cursive or not. I seem to recall my eighth grade teacher briefly deciding cursive was super important, but I think that eventually stopped too.
In any case, I haven't had to use cursive outside of giving my signature since, and that's a fairly common experience among my age group. However, that might not be true in New Jersey if one bill gains the right amount of traction there.
