This btn story was about Finland deciding to scrap cursive handwriting lessons and replacing them with typing lessons .

Some Australian critics agree with this idea but many people are going against ditching cursive handwriting. As of 2016 NAPLAN  will be taken online. In the 15th century Niccolo Niccoli invented cursive writing but now Finland believs it is a waste of time and that it has pas its used by date.

I wonder why Finland believs that cursive is a waste of time?
