A bill was just passed by the Ohio state legislature that will keep the skill of cursive from dying off completely.

House Bill 58 requires the state Department of Education to create a new curriculum around cursive. The handwriting course will be aimed at children in kindergarten through fifth grade.

Students should be able to print letter legibly by the end of third grade and write in cursive by the end of fifth grade.

The bill needs to pass its final vote in the Senate.
