Petition Add chess to the school curriculum
Chess should be added to the school curriculum. It is fun, and educational. It promotes logical thinking and focused thought, and does so in a game format which appeals to young minds. Also there is a rich and varied history to the game. It could be taught with a mixture of theory and practice, much like music is currently.
