I think cursive should still be taught. How about you?
Zarroette

Con

Thank you, Pro, for instigating this debate.

Seeing that Pro is affirming the resolution, and thus has the BoP to affirm, we await Pro's arguments that will affirm the resolution.

Pro has yet to affirm the resolution, hence we await arguments.

awesomegable forfeited this round.

Con

No affirmative arguments means that Con wins by default, due to the BoP being on Pro.

Maybe not the entire cursive "alphabet", but sometime in their education, they should be taught how to write signatures, as it will most likely be reqiured later in life.
