# Should cursive be taught in school?

Personally, I think it’s a good thing that cursive was phased out. Replacing it with a more practical skill like typing makes a lot of sense.

However, this opens up the argument that many things taught in school are not exactly practical and could be eliminated with the ubiquity of modern technologies. Why learn basic math when we have calculators? For that matter, why learn anything when we can Google everything? It’s a slippery slope to eliminate every skill that doesn’t fall into the practical category, and I think there is something to be said for learning for the sake of learning.

That being said, many people feel like much of a child’s current curriculum will not prepare them for “real life.” There are only so many hours in a school day, so is there more value in learning how to do your own taxes versus advanced calculus? Overall, I think it’s important to have a good balance of practicality and creativity in education.

# Do schools still teach cursive writing?

In 2010, the Common Core Standards Initiative removed the requirement that cursive be taught in public elementary schools. It made sense given the rise in computer usage and a greater emphasis placed on keyboarding in the school curriculum. However, several states have since reinstated the cursive requirement, thanks to lobbyists and lawmakers who advocate for the importance of the skill. So yes, some schools do still teach cursive writing.

# What was second middle passage?

The "Middle Passage" refers to the second leg in a triangular trading route that resulted in massive numbers of Africans being transported to America as slaves. The "Second Middle Passage" is a phrase coined to refer to the mass movement westward of slaves from the southern United States.

In essence, the second middle passage can be thought of as the second of two periods during which large numbers of African slaves were moved to environments that were very alien to them - a difficult experience that even further exacerbated the difficulties of slave life.

Red Shift

# Can there be purple shift aswell as blue shift and red shift?

Redshift and blueshift refer to a change in frequency of light we receive from distant objects (stars, galaxies, etc.) The light can turn different colors, and purple is one of them. However, no matter what the color the light changes to, the technical term is always "redshift" if the frequency of the light decreases (normally indicating that the object is moving away from us), and "blueshift" if it increases (normally indicating that the object is moving towards us).

Blue shift and purple shift would mean the same thing because the spectrum is one-dimensional. It's like if you are in Boston, a shift towards Chicago is the same as a shift towards San Francisco.

Obviously, a purple shift is a super blue shift.
