Hope for our education system
Assembly Bill 456 would require cursive handwriting instruction in first through sixth grade. The bill was introduced by Assembly woman Sharon Quirk-Silva (D Fullerton) who is a former public elementary school teacher. The bill would require cursive handwriting instruction in elementary school. Assembly woman Quirk-Silva stated that the implementation of the curriculum varies greatly from classroom to classroom. The bill doesn’t pinpoint a specific grade in which cursive would have to be taught but rather requires teachers to be more intentional about making sure they include some instruction each year from first through sixth grade.
