I agree that cursive is an important skill and I think it's wrong that most schools have stopped teaching it. (My wife is a special education teacher: she knows from experience that dyslexic kids who tend to transpose or mix up letters have an easier time reading and writing cursive, where the letters are connected and thus can't "flip".) If this were cursive, I'd be fine with it. It's not: it's just a messyish handwriting, some printed, some cursive-ish, with capital letters sprinkled willy-nilly throughout words. My three year old is just beginning to recognize letters and is a long way from reading independantly: I'd like him to master the basics before trying to decipher the unique variations of individual handwriting styles.
