Senate passes cursive resolution

When the Senate took up HCR 3, the cursive writing resolution, this morning, Sen. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, warned, “I hope you’re not expecting for my debate … to be as eloquent as the good House sponsor from across the rotunda.” Nonini told the Senate he had seven pages of hand-written cursive notes from that House sponsor, Rep. Linden Bateman, R-Idaho Falls, regarding the resolution, which calls on the state Board of Education to include cursive writing in Idaho’s Common Core standards for what children should learn in school. “We heard the evidence presented to us that this is good information, it helps with brain development,” Nonini told the Senate.
