Governor Rauner Vetoes Cursive Mandate
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois school kids will be spared from lessons on cursive. Governor Bruce Rauner on Friday vetoed a proposed state law that would require students to learn formal handwriting skills. The governor says the cursive requirement is just another unfunded mandate from Springfield, and doesn’t help Illinois kids in the realities of 2017. Supporters of the idea said young people need to learn to read and write in cursive to be able to sign legal documents.
