Moving its way through the Statehouse is a bill that would require Indiana schools to teach cursive writing to students. The Indiana Senate approved the bill yesterday, 38 to 11.
The bill would make every Indiana school corporation, charter school and accredited non-public elementary school to add cursive to their curriculums. Currently, only 20 percent of Indiana schools teach it.
State Senator Jean Leising authored the bill, saying some teens can't sign their driver's licenses or agreements to validate them.
The bill must be passed by the House Education Committee and the full Indiana House before it is sent to Governor Eric Holcomb for final approval.
