Charter: Cursive Is An Art Form

When students turn in a handwritten assignment at Xavier Charter School, they know it has to be in cursive. In an era when some schools don’t teach the style of handwriting anymore, it’s still part of the curriculum at the Twin Falls public charter school. “We actively teach it in third and fourth grade as a subject,” said Xavier co-founder and lead teacher Becky Baird. Xavier — which has students in kindergarten through 12th grades — uses a European, classical model of education. Baird said the school keeps cursive in the curriculum because “it is truly an art form” and a valuable discipline for students/Julie Wootton, Twin Falls Times News. More here.
