Keep Cursive in Schools?

(Columbus)-  State representatives have introduced legislation that could make cursive writing a requirement in Ohio schools.

Rep. Andrew Brenner, R-Powell and Rep. Marilyn Slaby, R-Akron introduced HB 58 on Monday.

The bill would require handwriting instruction in kindergarten through fifth grade to ensure students develop the ability to print letters by third grade and write cursive by fifth grade. 

At least seven states already require schools to teach cursive handwriting:  Arizona, Arkansas, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
