It might be time for you to brush up on your cursive. A bill requiring cursive writing in Indiana schools cleared a Senate committee Wednesday.

The State Department of Education dropped the requirement in 2011, pushing for students to learn more keyboard and computer skills.

A similar measure was approved by the Senate last year but didn’t advance in the House.

    It's truly a shame that the government has to legislate something so basic. Keyboards are a technological evolution not a substitute for communication learning skill. Our wonderful social experimentation educators I'm sure are at the root of this. Next thing you know they will insist that students need not learn to read since so many of the lessons are available on audio.
