DN article says she is a Sterling Scholar. Have schools already chosen their Sterling Scholar candidates? If not, that would be an indication that she has already graduated and is no longer a Utah public school student.

A current senior would probably have been born in 1997 or 1998; there are four students with that name in that age range in Utah schools at present, one each at Skyline, Spanish Fork, West Jordan, and Tuacahn high schools.

She is not a student at East High, and I don’t think that she is a student in the SLC SD.

Still hoping to hear what school Rebecca Peterson attends and who is her librarian. That's because she obviously has good library research skills. Hope someone eventually gets around to reading through all their email sent over the holidays :-) to identify her.

In June, 2013, the Utah Core Standards were revised and teaching handwriting—manuscript and cursive—was formally placed in the Standards for grades K-5. In Appendix A, there is a section on the research base that was considered when this decision was made. This revision was made after a year of committee study, public comment, and State Board approval.
Subsequently, there was a course developed by USOE and UEN that is offered online to support teachers in learning how to teach handwriting if that was not something they learned in their teacher education programs.
Teaching handwriting, beginning with manuscript and moving into cursive, is recognized as a critical component of teaching and learning in the Utah Core Standards.

An op-ed piece printed in the Deseret News yesterday titled "Doing Away With Cursive is a Bad Idea" is an excellent, well-researched piece written by Rebecca Peterson, a high school senior here in Utah. I would dearly love to be able to say she learned some of her skills in a Utah school library, taught by a school librarian; it would be a strong selling-point. Do any of you know her and could give me more details?
