Where do they not do cursive handwriting?

Where and who is there who can help get them the right cursive books, etc.??My friend lives in Swarthmore, Saskatchewan, Canada.  It it not far from Calgary.  He says his friend's daugher who is ten years old learned cursive handwriting. The other daughter who is eight years old did not. Seems the US isn't the only country to deny their children a future. We have some members from Canada. Wants to take this on in Canada?  I found politicans are easier to get on your side than the teacher's association.  Do you have a Handwriting Day?  Create one.  Use it to spread cursive writing skills in the schools, etc.
