NC Senate wants cursive, times tables taught

Friday, April 26th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The General Assembly appears ready to pass a law requiring North Carolina public schools to teach old-school lessons of cursive writing and multiplication tables.

The Senate voted by a wide margin Thursday in favor of a bill directing state education leaders to ensure students are instructed how to write legibly in cursive by the end of fifth grade. Students also would be taught to memorize times tables.

A bill with identical content passed the House three weeks ago, but the legislation can’t go to Gov. Pat McCrory’s desk yet because they are two separate pieces of legislation. One bill must be approved by two chambers.

Bill proponents have been worried because cursive isn’t part of the “common core” curriculum North Carolina and more than 40 states now implement.
