brian rubenstein started this petition to Robin Bullock, Superintendent of Schools Allen Independant School District

The world has and is continuing to evolve. Writing is still important, but more and more learning and life is written on a device. Many kids simply use their index fingers to type on a computer keyboard - and while they may be 'quick', the keyboard was designed with function (home keys, the layout of the board, etc), and kids these days do not use it correctly. 

In this time, when kids are given laptops to use at school as early as Kindergarten, it would make sense to also give them the skills to use these devices correctly and learn the proper way to type.  

By signing this petition, please let the Allen Independent School District know that you agree and want to have basic typing included as a class / skill taught during the FIRST GRADE year of elementary school so that kids have the skill and ability to type for the rest of their lives.
