I remember thinking the whole cursive thing was weird. We learned cursive in fourth grade, which for me would have been 2006-2007. And then the following year in fifth grade we were required to write everything in cursive. Literally everything. It was a good experience because now I know how to write it pretty well. But sixth grade and onward it was never required ever again. That's what really confused me. It's not like I went to sixth grade as they were phasing it out, it was a known thing in my school that fourth and fifth grade were the years you learned and then wrote cursive and after that you never needed to write it again. They eventually stopped teaching it altogether but I don't know when that was exactly.
