It will be interesting to see if a test case comes up.  And I'd add the parents I've spoken with are rather displeased with cursive being dropped from the curriculum* and several are teaching their kids at home.

*or should it be, "curricula"?

I believe that your official 'signature' can be anything really- as long as it's consistent on all various documents, so that it can be confirmed as your particular 'mark'.

I'm curious to how people not learning cursive will sign legal documents and checks.  But perhaps checks are becoming rather less used than they previously were.

I have heard about this myself over some years now, in NY state. Heard they are no longer teaching cursive (script) or 'penmanship' at all in school. Seems hard to believe. Cursive writing used to be so beautiful to see long ago. Guess we're just hopeless old farts now.  lol

Do any members have school aged children?  I have been chatting with coworkers who are parents and coworkers in their early 20s, so recently graduated high school, and have been informed our local school district has stopped teaching cursive writing.  One coworker told me her 14 year old son cannot sign his name as cursive in not part of the curriculum.  Has anyone else encountered this?  It seems very bizarre!
