INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A bill that would require schools to teach children cursive writing cleared a hurdle on Tuesday.
The Indiana Senate passed the bill 36-13. It now moves on to the Indiana House.
Indiana dropped the teaching of cursive writing in 2011, instead wanting schools to focus on keyboard skills.
Last year’s similar bill passed the Senate but didn’t get a vote in the House.
