Chess, the long-known game of skill, teaches children enough life lessons that it should, undoubtedly, be taught in public schools as part of the curriculum.

Chess is a very strategic game and it can be confusing to some kids, if it is part in the school curriculum then the people that don't get how to play or doesn't want to learn how to play how can you force them? its just a board game and if its part of the curriculum then you can't skip the class because its now a subject, like math or english and you can't skip those.

There are many other board games like chess, checkers, sequence, and even game of life that teaches the same and even more fundamentals then chess. Is every single board game now going to be part of school subjects? why chess. there are others that are more easier, fun and more enjoyable then just chess.

As i chess lover myself i really like playing the game but chess... really? part or the school curriculum? thats like saying playing computer games is now going to be a school subject.

Thats why i think chess should be a game where you play after school if you want to or just at home.
