Brenda Hatcher, a friend of the girl's mother, shared the post on her Facebook page and the post quickly went viral.

Hatcher explains that her friend had taken the time to teach her daughter how to write in cursive (which is no easy feat). What does Alyssa get for learning the art of cursive writing? A "warning" at the top of her paper.

Hundreds of commenters have shared their opinions on Hatcher's Facebook post, and the post has racked up a total of 423,298 shares.

Here are a few comments from Facebook on the matter:

"Absolutely ridiculous!! All of my children will definitely be fluent in cursive!!"

When I was In school I was only allowed to write cursive lol weird!

"The paper didn't ask for her signature. The paper asks for her name. Which is supposed to be printed. Let's reward kids for not being able to follow directions. Idiocracy is coming true!"

Although I commend a 7 year old's advancement, realize that at 7 years old its more important they learn how to print before cursive.

So we want to know, what do you think about the teacher's note?
