@Gargron It was for me in the 1970s-1980s, but I think ours was the last year in which it was taught.
For which I was very grateful. So many kids who didn't have to go through the pointless hell we did of learning two separate handwriting systems, one useful and readable, one absurd and unreadable, refused by industry and never to be used.
By my high school year keyboarding was coming in, instead, which was much more useful for the future.
Basically my experience learning Cursive taught me an important lesson, which is that sometimes teachers are wrong and schools teach you stupid stuff that only wastes your time and hurts you.
