由于美國學校系統引入了技術，筆跡被描述為一門失傳的藝術。2011年7月7日，MSNBCs，Peter Jennings說，伊利諾斯的學校不再教草書，它現在是可選的在其他四十三個州教草書（詹寧斯）。在我對答案的研究中，我發現了許多文章、研究、錄像和出版物，為什么草書對美國的未來很重要。我發現，盡管許多教育家、學者和媒體人士都同意草書應該作為美國學校課程的一部分保留下來，但大多數人還是接受并同意技術將是美國學校未來教學和學習的方式。我還發現，美國有一個短缺的某些職業，今天美國的學齡兒童，將無法獲得沒有草書所提供的發展利益，當他們長大時（腎，2）。在我的研究中，我遇到了一些支持美國學校草書書寫過時的論壇。評論說，技術是更快和更容易使用，而草書只是花了太長的時間來寫下（tweentribune）。Lynne Schrum的國際教育技術協會的前主席說，“壓力有來自聯邦政府，從當地的學校董事會，當然，從大眾媒體，教育者上車，讓學生成為技術熟練，”（Schrum）。Schrum，研究了在2000回，我們現在是2012，我找不到新的研究顯示，最近的研究對美國兒童接受技術集成到學校的好處的結果。
Handwriting is being described as a lost art, due to the introduction of technology in Americas school systems. On July 7, 2011, MSNBCs, Peter Jennings reported that, Illinois schools would no longer teach cursive handwriting and that it is now optional to teach cursive in forty-three other states (Jennings). In my research for answers, I came across many articles, studies, videos and publications, as to why cursive handwriting is important for America's future. I found that though many educators, scholars and media personalities, agreed that cursive handwriting should be kept as part of America's schools curriculum, most just accept and also agreed that technology will be the way of teaching and learning in the future of America's schools. I also found that America has a shortage of certain professions that, today's American school age children, will not be able to obtain without the developmental benefits that cursive handwriting has to offer, when they grow up (Wilm, 2). During my research I came across some forums that were in support of making cursive handwriting obsolete in America's schools. The comments mention that technology was faster and easier to use, and that cursive handwriting just took too long to write down (TweenTribune). Lynne Schrum, past president of the International Society for Technology in Education says, "Pressure abounds from the federal government, from local school boards, and certainly from the popular press, for educators to get on board and see to it that students become technologically skilled," (Schrum). Schrum, research was done back in 2000, we are now in 2012, I could not find new research showing recent studies as to the outcome of the benefits that American children are receiving from technology being integrated into the schools.
