Many are thinking of getting rid of it or have made steps towards that goal. Their reason: we don't do much of it.
There are all sorts of reasons why not to get rid of it, of course. The thick region between writing and drawing, for example, learning one is learning the other, the hand-eye coordination, the joy of moving a tiny stylus around, and on and on.
But let's just consider the logic.
We titrate even less than we write by hand: so let's get rid of chemistry.
We differentiate very infrequently in "the real world": so let's get rid of math.
More to the point: we use calculators all the time, so let's get rid of math.
