Another "lost art" is that of diagramming sentences. That was always torture for me, and I understand that it is not taught anymore. I never could figure out what the point of doing them was! Mike G

Apparently with all the prep needed for standardized tests, there is no need for

students to learn cursive writing.


This basically means that they are entirely cut off from looking at original written documents, whether historical or personal.

It is also likely to discourage first written drafts, as it's a pain to print.

A pity,
