Chess to become compulsory in Armenia
What do people think of this?http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-13140772
There are some interesting pros and cons. Some people dislike making it compolsory, thinking that it will take the joy out of the game. That said, psychical education is compulsory and kids love that...
Overall I'm really for it. In today's flash bang culture I think it's really important for kids to have something which requires real concentration but which can also be fun and creative.
