Not in this house!

I'm reading more and more about schools dropping cursive writing instruction.  I understand where they're coming from, but I think it's shortsighted in some ways.  I remember reading a story about it where a high school teacher showed her class one of the classic Hitchcock films (North by Northwest perhaps?)  In this film, a pivotal plot device was the protagonist finding a handwritten note that conveys critical information.  She had to stop the film and read it to her class because *none of them could read it.*

I'm a calligrapher.  No child of mine will be signing her document with an "x" for "here she made her mark."  Okay, I'm exaggerating, but you see my point.

So - anyone out there know how/where to get the instructional manuals?  *I'll* teach her if the school won't.
