It was never my job to teach handwriting. That was covered at primary school and it's not even assessed.
Now if you're saying that handwriting is such a problem that it's holding kids back, who do you think would know? Who would be on the sharp edge of that?
I'm saying examiners, people who mark public exams, they'd know if they had to refer a significant number of papers back to head office because they were illegible.
I've marked public exams for over ten years. I'm not allowed to go into specifics because I signed a confidentiality contract.
Although there are procedures for referring illegible scripts I've never once had to pass a script on. I've seen some pretty shitty handwriting but nothing so bad I can't mark it. And I've given top marks to some really shitty stuff and low marks for stuff written in beautiful copperplate because handwriting isn't assessed.
I said that I see it time after time, year after year. That is merely stating the fact that many teachers don't know the first thing about teaching a child how to write. That is a fact. .
And you do?
Well prove it. You're the expert so tell everyone how you would go about teaching a class of 30 kids how to write. Where's that lesson plan?
As you're such an expert I expect it will become a very useful resource for the teaching of writing throughout the World. It can be your great gift to humanity.
Or you could just admit to being full of ****.
