A bill that would require Indiana schools to teach cursive writing won a Senate education committee’s approval on a 7-4 vote Wednesday.
The bill is authored by Sen. Jean Leising, R-Oldenburg. At least two conservative Republican members of the committee said they weren’t sure how they’d vote when the bill moved to the Senate floor.
Sen. Pete Miller, R-Avon, said he voted no and that it was “not that I’m voting against cursive, but just the concept of the legislature determining the curriculum.”
Worth noting: The Senate Education and Career Development Committee does all its work on iPads.
