A story the drive by media will never tell you; thank you Texas Monthly you are showing signs of fair and balanced reporting .

Why unlikely? Just shows the failure to comprehend by those on the left.

There was another school shooting in Texas this week... Not much publicity about it because no one died ..

Time to break out the handy "Mass shooting in US checklist": 1. Send thoughts & prayers but not actually do anything useful✔ 2. Argue over semantics of the term "assault rifle"✔ 3. Argue over semantics of the term "terrorist" - if Muslim use it, if Christian use term "lone wolf" ✔ 4. Congress does nothing but NRA increases donations just in case ✔ 5. Attribute shooting to mental health issues ✔️ 6. Wait for next one, repeat ✔️

Was it "Take You Gun to School" day? I mean,ya know,Kentucky.

Do you think all kids should know how to write in cursive? ... See MoreSee Less

Shows how lazy some teachers are becoming. It takes effort to teach cursive.

Yes, I didn't think it was a problem until a kid getting his drivers license did not know how to sign his name in cursive on the license. All of this country's founding documents - like the Constitution are written in cursive. I have watched a lot of younger people in our meetings at work and they have trouble taking notes because they are printing instead of writing quickly in cursive. Also, when handwritten notes come across their desk they can't read them.

I’d be interested in knowing the age breakdown of the people answering this question. My guess would be that the millennials and younger would say no, and the older, would say yes. We’re in a transition. Eventually there will be less and less paper used and everything will transition to digital. There won’t be a need for cursive. Perhaps everyone will have their own unique symbol, like Prince. Cursive will be the new Latin.

Not a priority in this technology age. The nostalgia in me says yes! I had to learn cursive. However, if you think about the jobs these kids are going to face in the future...I doubt they’re going to run into much cursive.

The constitution is in cursive and my children are reading it ... i took it upon my self to teach my kids cursive when they started to write. In 5th grade my Kids Are required to read and rewrite the ensable of the constitution in which is in cursive.... other peers of theirs have no clue how to read this! I can not understand how your going to ask of the kids to read cursive and yet none of the teachers are teaching it. We are paying for their education i want them to have the best .. the education system is a huge disappointment!!!!

Cursive allows for faster writing. I'm all about using my time wisely.

Also known as the secrete ode the millianals can't break

Yes!!! There will be forms in their life that they will have to sign legally and asked for a signature

Please put it back in the curriculum!!!! I teach my 8 yr old on my own. My older boys learned and I make them practice it.

Yes, imagine their signatures lmao won't be hard to forge since they'll look like chicken scratch Taylor Madison

They need to know how to write and read it.

We teach our teenage kids & younger kids to write cursive handwriting. We went to a teacher supply store & bought both print & cursive alphabet desk tape. Put them both on write on wipe off handwriting sheets & use dry erase markers. User friendly, reusable, & are recyclable. Inexpensive to make. Our kids like learning to write cursive handwriting & see how often daily myself & other grown ups use it. Besides there's historical documents in cursive handwriting & if they can't write/read it then they'll never be able to read the documents. They'll always have to ask someone to read it for them? Seem silly the schools don't teach this especially knowing how important it's needed for them to know how to do. We also use red & blue color overlays to help with our kids reading. As both our kids are Dyslexic & one has Epilepsy / ADD & the other is Autistic /ADHD. I know there's websites & apps online to help teach cursive handwriting. But it turns out teaching it "old school, by hand" works best & is easier to learn to do.

Yes. They need to be able to sign documents, as well as understand how to read cursive writing.

If you don't write in cursive, how are you going to keep someone from stealing your identity? How do you match signatures at the bank if everyone is printing their name? How do you read cursive if you were never taught it? To ask this question is really dumb. Just as dumb as common core math!

Should? No. But my kids asked how and are learning. I taught one and am working with the others. I think it would be great if kids could learn about whatever they want and if parents, educators, or society could support them in that.

Well, without cursive writing, they will never be able to read historical documents. So yeah, kind of important.

Yes. I want my children and grandchildren to be able to read old documents and even letters written by relatives I especially want them to be able to read original documents written within history over taking someone's word, such as being able to read the original Declaration of Independence, letters written by our presidents, forefathers and ancestors. This erasing history business is a double edged sword. We are supposed to learn from history whether it's good or past mistakes.

Don’t say “consumption!” Kids are already eating Tide pods. Next think you know, they’ll be sucking the ink out of pens.

How can anyone develop a unique signature if all they know how to do is print? Absolutely teach penmanship! It could be 15 minutes a day, at home, if not at school. It's not hard, and it is important!

What a waste of valuable class time. Nobody uses cursive, but more STEM would be time well spent. Cursive is a novelty, kinda like calligraphy was. It’s the electronics age, learn the keyboard!

Absolutely because that is part of being an adult!! You ha e to sign your name to all documents and not print!! Put cursive back into school!!

Everyone should learn it, my grandmother couldn't read or write and she learned to sign her name, because it was required if her for social security checks it had to have a signature

I think it juat something they can use,it will add a personal touch ti some

Historic Documents were written in cursive! Duhhhh children should learn how to write in cursive. That is a no brainer....

Yes, I'm 64 and it was required in elementary Jr.High and High School

Irresponsible KHOU. You do realize this is typically info used for security questions.

In December, a team of five, including Texans and immigrants, embarked on a monthslong journey from El Paso to the Gulf of Mexico along the U.S.-Mexico border and the Rio Grande using different modes of transportation: mountain bikes, horses, and canoes.

Their purpose? To document the borderlands before further construction of a border wall and to explore how a physical wall would impact landowners, border culture, wildlife, public lands, and water access.

I can still hear the words of Pres Ronald Reagan "Mr Gorbachev tear down this wall" I guess our grandchildren will judge us harshly for building the wall as they tear it down....

Maybe the wall money would be better spent helping Mexico with their economy and their problems how bow dah

Don't care, still want that big beautiful wall built!

I did a canoe trip along the Rio Grande a number of years ago. I can’t imagine a wall.... or that it would be good for anyone including wildlife. It’s rugged, remote, beautiful, and should remain as such.

If they do damage to the trees/plants along the whole Rio Grande, what is it going to do to the river/wildlife/people?

The immigrants where Texans that immigrated to Mexico? Surely many do, since there are no shitholes.

Texas monthly the liberal magazine of the left strikes again . The one if the partners is the son of Wm. Hobby the ex Lt. Governor Of Texas a staunch Democrat have you not noticed since the magazine was bought by his son’s Investment firm more left , liberal points of view in articles . This is true and you can look up Paul Hobby . Genesis Park L. P. Is the new owner

I remember my first trip to Nogales, Arizona in the 1980s. The fence at the border was chain link and relatives on the American side would drive up in pickups to hoist household appliances over it to their family and friends in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico. In many places the Tohono O'Odham people would place a small step ladder over the wire fence that marked the border on their Reservation and go visit the portion of the tribe in Mexico. The multi-billion dollar cartels who engineer tunnels under the border, build their own submarines and utilize both low tech and high tech methods will not be stopped by the Wall. Like so much of the war on drugs, it will be ineffective.

I can’t believe Texans would be supporting some billionaire from New York City and even allowing his government to take away their land and destroy our state. It’s a sad state of affairs. Imagine Texas without chili, tacos, tamales or Tex-Mex! The Texians would have taken up arms!

Texas Liberal Monthly at it again. You and your California imports would love to stop the wall.

Do you really think any land owners along the Rio Grande are just going to hand over their property for a Wall? Texans pride themselves on their land ownership and stewardship, some land has been in families for generations. I just see the whole mess being tied up in courts for years. Illegal immigration won't be stopped by a wall, there are thousands of illegals paying huge costs just to come and give birth here, just for an education and benefits. It's not the wall that will help, it's changing our policies in a changing time. Stop granting citizenship to just any one born here. Stop the benefits, increase deportations, etc.

The wall would screw up the Big Bend area tremendously.

A wall won't stop sh*t!!! Anyone heard of going over or going under? Are we living in the Berlin wall days?

Beautiful landscape. I'm still shocked that any Texan would support the Federal government destroying it with a wall. These aren't the same "small government, States' rights" classic Republicans we used to know.

The pictures from the group are beautiful!

I'm pretty sure those are all the things proponents of the wall want it to do... I can't help but think they just did the Trump administration a favor.

You can bet they will get stopped multiple times by ICE and DPS. The Rio is not a safe river because of law enforcement.

Go Trump

Such a beautiful photo

Unlikely the wall will be built in that area due to the terrain and small population

Do they do this every time a new road is built?

A powerful witness

What an adventure that must have been

Do not mess with Texas.

Really good article
