State Rep. Andria Bennett’s House Bill 70 would make cursive writing a requirement for Delaware public education students. This is the second time in the past couple of years a bill like this came before the Delaware General Assembly. Last time, State Rep. Deb Hudson was the main sponsor of this bill but it didn’t move forward. For this legislative session, it looks like the proposed bill has a lot more Democrat support.
I support this bill. You need to know cursive to sign checks and important documents. It also promotes better penmanship for students. Many historical documents were in cursive. Thanks Rep. Bennett!
