BTN: Handwriting

This B.T.N story was about Finland replacing cursive with typing.

Finland wants to replace cursive with typing (Which was made by Niccolo Nicoli) because, people don’t use cursive that much, some people say that cursive doesn’t help your writing and some people say: people use things like emails more. Finland might also use computers for NAPLAN because kids might get better results. But if Finland does start doing typing lessons, people may get bad at spelling because they rely on spell check

But seeing that finland does it, do you think we will replace cursive?
