Public school students will be required to learn cursive writing this year, as a bill by Franklinton Senator Beth Mizell went into effect on July 1. Mizell’s bill passed during last year’s legislative session, but it didn’t take effect right away. She says this gave school systems more time to prepare.

A bill that would mandate that public schools teach cursive writing by the third grade passed unanimously out of the Senate Education Committee. Franklinton Senator Beth Mizell authored the bill, because she is concerned about kids not using cursive for their signature, which she says is an identity that students carry with them through their entire lives.
