MADISON, Wis. (AP) — Wisconsin legislators struggled Wednesday with a bill that would force schools to teach cursive writing, questioning whether they should make teachers spend time and money preserving the centuries-old style in today's computerized word.

Republican Rep. Jeremy Thiesfeldt, a former teacher, introduced the bill in September. The measure would require schools that receive state dollars to include cursive in their elementary curriculum with the goal of having students write legibly in cursive by the end of fifth grade.
