All Texas districts to teach students cursive writing again starting next school year

The State Board of Education had previously changed the requirements for teaching cursive writing in 2017.

Now, starting next school year it will be a requirement for all Texas school district's elementary students from second grade to learn how to legibly write in cursive by the time they reach fifth grade.

The new requirement comes to light in response to the decrease observed since 2005 due to the increase in computers, tablets, standardized testing and technology in general.

Now-a-days writing in cursive is categorized as a rare skill for elementary students but will soon become a requirement by the state.

Todos los distritos de Texas enseñarán nuevamente a los estudiantes la escritura cursiva a partir del próximo año escolar

La Junta de Educación del Estado había cambiado previamente los requisitos para enseñar escritura cursiva en 2017.

Ahora, a partir del próximo año escolar, será un requisito para todos los estudiantes de primaria del distrito escolar de Texas de segundo grado que aprendan a escribir de forma legible en cursiva para cuando lleguen al quinto grado.

El nuevo requisito sale a la luz en respuesta a la disminución observada desde 2005 debido al aumento en computadoras, tabletas, pruebas estandarizadas y tecnología en general.

Hoy en día, escribir en cursiva se clasifica como una habilidad poco común para los estudiantes de primaria, pero pronto se convertirá en un requisito para el estado.
