Cursive handwriting instruction is returning to elementary school classrooms in New York City.
Schools chancellor Carmen Fariña has committed to include cursive writing in third-grade curriculum in city schools, according to Staten Island assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, who has advocated for cursive instruction. Many schools have already started implementing the curriculum.
The assemblywoman said it’s important for young people to “know how to write a signature of their own to identify themselves, and have the ability to sign a legal document, check, or voter registration form.”
