Cursive Comeback at NC Schools?

Updated: Friday, August 2 2013, 10:15 PM EDT

Little Vivian Whiteley says cursive can be fun.
 
"Yes, it's kind of is, very entertaining."

It's
already a daily routine in Katie Shellogg's third grade class at Hall
Fletcher Elementary. She says cursive is still relevant in our
technology-driven world.

"There are so many times when I have my
computer, phone and iPad around me but I still just want a good old
pencil and paper to make a note," said Shellogg.

The "Back To
Basics" bill introduced in the state house would insure that cursive is
part of the curriculum in all North Carolina schools.

Shellogg says high tech and low tech can coexist, and that students need a well-balanced education.
   
"I think it's good to make sure that they're able to do a balance of both. "
