ATG Quirkies: It’s the Law! You Must Learn Cursive Handwriting.

Cursive1It looks like penmanship may be making a comeback – at least in AlabamaLegislators in Montgomery joined those in California and Louisiana “in passing a law that mandates cursive proficiency for its students.” The new cursive law is the brainchild of State Rep. Dickie Drake who feels that while “cursive instruction was already a requirement of the state-approved school curriculum…  it was not being taught.”  Evidently according to Rep. Drake, teachers were too busy teaching the common core to give cursive its due.
