HCR 3, the resolution urging the State Board of Education to include cursive writing when it enacts the Common Core standards for what Idaho students should learn in school, has cleared the Senate Education Committee; it earlier passed the House. Those national standards don’t include cursive, but states can choose to add it, and several have. The Senate committee approved the measure on a unanimous voice vote, after hearing several people testify in favor of it. The resolution now moves to the full Senate.
