A New Jersey lawmaker wants to make learning how to write in cursive mandatory for all students.
- Like many states, New Jersey doesn’t require students to learn cursive anymore.
- However, one lawmaker is trying to change that, introducing legislation that would make it a requirement again.
- Proponents argue that students should know how to write using the format, while opponents say it’s dated to teach students two ways to write when so much communication is done with typing.
- Other states have taken moves to make cursive instruction mandatory as well.
