STATEWIDE – A bill that would require Indiana schools to teach cursive writing yesterday passed the Senate by a vote of 31 to 18. 

The bill would require each school corporation, charter school and accredited nonpublic elementary school to include cursive writing in its curriculum. 

Many private schools in Indiana have continued to teach cursive, creating a disparity between public and private schools. 

The bill will now return to the House of Representatives for further consideration.
