Lawmakers pushing cursive in Indiana schools

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (WAVE) - Indiana lawmakers are again considering a push to require the teaching of cursive writing by the state's schools.

The issue first came up after the State Department of Education dropped cursive writing as a required part of the school curriculum in 2011.

School districts were told the State expected students to become proficient in keyboard use.

A State Senate education committee will hold a hearing this week on a bill would that would require all public schools to teach cursive.
