Dear Jeff:

Radio talk show host Roy Green is right on once again. He discovered through one of his former producers who had difficulty writing that cursive handwriting, such as the ability to print your name is not taught in some schools anymore. You cannot function in society with any cognition if you do not have the ability to handwrite & handprint. Things like legal documents would be hard for you II read & sign. Many students haven't even got the ability to hold pens/pencils/other writing instruments anymore & thats truly frightening. Roy's producer couldn't write very well & Roy noticed mistakes in his syntax/grammar. It took until Grade 12 english & post-secondary endeavours IV this producer II learn to write. I IV one don't understand why schools juist dumb down results IV students in order to just move them on when they should be either held back &/or given some tutoring by teachers/linguistic experts so that they can keep bon pace & not graduate high school as a functional illiterate.
