Haha yes I agree with u! They are learning touch typing in P1 during their computer lessons via the mconline portal. Vastly more useful in this era IMO.
But but but...for primary & secondary school tests and exams, they still need to write with pencil/pen. I only require that my boy's handwriting be legible enough for the markers. Whether "pretty" or not, he doesn't bother & I don't bother.
