Typing is maybe #1 among the courses in highschool that I remember and that has had a concrete benefit to me.
Me too. Typing was the most useful thing I learned in high school.
That said, each of my kids has been taught keyboard in 3rd or 4th grade so it's not highschool material any more.
My son is in 4th grade, and they are learning to type in school. They dumped cursive to free up time in the schedule. I haven't used cursive handwriting since I learned to type, so it may be time to toss it on the ash heap of history.
