I don't see an issue with it. It was the same way when I was in school. I did not have the option to print or use cursive until I was in my freshman year of high school. At that point, we could type, print, or write in cursive. But between 2nd and 8th grade it was 100% cursive only on all school work.

Same here! I expect Jay will start learning cursive next year - 2nd grade. My 6th grader has a choice though, he can print or write in cursive but the teachers preference is typed - probably because it's easier to read.
