What’s wrong with Comic Sans?

There are two camps – those who use Comic Sans regularly and those who disdain it. I fall into the latter camp. I do understand, however, that like “The Big Bang Theory” there are people who will absolutely love that which I will never understand – and that’s ok.

Instead of trying to convince anyone that Comic Sans is terrible, I’d rather simply offer some other options for teachers to consider using. All of these fonts are free to download from
