Texas is going to start teaching cursive writing in schools again. What do you think about that?

Texas public school second-graders will start learning the penmanship style, once abandoned by many classrooms, beginning this fall when changes to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills standards take effect.

Under the new standards, which the State Board of Education adopted in 2017, students should know how to “write complete words, thoughts and answers legibly in cursive” in third grade.

At least a dozen other states have enacted similar mandates, including Alabama, Louisiana, Florida and California, WTTW reported.

In 2017, the State Board of Education changed the requirements for the “English Language Arts and Reading” portion of the state education standards known as Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills or TEKS. The changes that were adopted are set to be implemented during the 2019-2020 school year.
