The decision by the Armenian government to make chess in schools compulsory has put chess in the mainstream media headlines around the world for positive reasons for a change.

Despite some evidence to suggest that chess helps improve critical and logical thinking skills, I'm not in favour of making it a compulsory subject in schools.

But I do feel that chess could be used far more by schools as a positive (and cheap) activity for children to play.

What do you think?
