Due to multiple factors including stylistic choices and technological advancement, the use of cursive has quickly declined since the start of the 21st century.
THEY STOPPED TEACHING READING AND WRITING IN CURSIVE IN SCHOOLS - HERE IS WHY

Dear heirs, For our beloved ancestors’ sake, and for the sake of our precious freedom, a thousand times I beg you — dearest — to never let the eyes of a monk pass over these writings. They speak sweet words, but they subtly distort all that concerns us Fryas.

In her time, Finda also designed a script. But it was so pompous and full of curls and flourishes that her descendants soon lost its meaning. ...

They also wanted their writing to be illegible to other peoples, as they always have secrets.

But when he (Seekrops) had fallen, his successors soon began to meddle with our laws, and gradually made so many corrupt decisions that, at long last, nothing remained of equality and freedom but illusions and words.
