That would be a shame. Writing is quite an important skill, but there is now an increasing number of people who can't write something which is both legible and well spelt without the aid of a computer... and I include myself in that group. My spelling is awful and my handwriting is even worse - sometimes I finish a meeting and can't read my own notes.

I just heard yesterday that schools in the US are considering stopping writing lessons because people never write anymore anyway.

Its useful as a back up skill. While most of the time people don't need to use a pen, as there usually is a handy electronic tool available, its good to be able to write without one just in case.

I'm curious how rote learning of spelling words or muscle memory to form perfect letters fall under important?
