Academic performance is the main concern of educators all over the world. Authentic researchers have studied the importance of handwriting for improving students' performance, and they have proved that using the hand in writing activates many regions in the brain that are related to memory and comprehension. The study aims at displaying the results of some substantial resources on handwriting to show this importance and its impact on students' academic performance. It also aims at being a loud call for the Ministry of Education, and the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to make a remedial action through establishing awareness campaigns to show the importance and necessity of updating curriculum to focus on using handwriting to enhance and support the students' reception of information. In order to achieve the success of the mentioned efforts, the researcher refers to training the trainers and establishing writing units that are joined to the learning institutions.
