in a few words

ah, the passing of childish things… how well I remember learning to cursive write with pen and ink in Grade two…

At least in our city, and probably the whole of Ontario, cursive writing has been abandoned by the Boards of Education.  How very short-sighted and suppressive of those who purport to promote the best for children in their educational experience.

As the child grows and learns in many subject areas, so the personality and individuality gradually become evident through the completely unique handwriting of each student.

Print script is the digitalization of the personality.

Print script is the suppression of creativity.

THOUGHT: how could this become a re-imagination project?
