The Washington legislature is considering a bill that would make teaching cursive handwriting mandatory at public schools.

Senate Bill 6469 had its first reading Jan. 21 was referred to the Early Learning and K-12 Education committee.

The bill amends state law to include cursive in the list of subjects that are included in the common curriculum.

Schools are not currently required to teach cursive.

If the bill passes, school districts would have to add cursive lessons when they review or adopt their language arts curricula.
