7-year-old girl gets in trouble for writing her name in cursive

A photo featuring a harsh message from a teacher to a student is going viral on Facebook and raising conversations about the place of cursive writing in classrooms.

The photo shows a sheet of paper with a homework assignment focusing on vowels, according to Popsugar. The name at the top of the paper says "Alyssa", spelled in cursive.

Also at the top of the sheet is writing in red ink from the teacher saying, "Stop writing your name in cursive. You have had several warnings."

Share this everywhere... Alyssa is 7!!! Not only is her mother a military veteran but, she took the time to teach her...

Popsugar reports that Alyssa's mom, from Kansas, taught her daughter how to write in cursive and probably never imagined that she would get in trouble for it.

The photo was shared by a friend, Brenda Hatcher, on Facebook, and commenters replied in outrage.

One said, "Best of luck to any teacher who writes this on my children's papers!"
