I read a story that said schools in Indiana, USA are going to stop teaching handwriting, and focus instead on keyboarding.

Do you think this is a good or bad thing? Why?

Even though I was never good at handwriting, it almost seems a shame to not even teach it anymore. I guess the only time most people use it is when signing their name, but how long will we have to do that anymore with the advent of nfc and phone-based credit card swiping?
