Armenia Adds Chess to the Elementary Curriculum

April 18, 2011

The Armenian Minister of Education has just announced that chess will become a compulsory part of its elementary curriculum. Starting at the age of six, all Armenian children will receive chess instruction for two hours every week. The total cost of this project will be approximately 1.5 million dollars and will ensure that the small country of Armenia will be a chess juggernaut for years to come.
   Hats off to the Armenian Government for investing a small sum of money to improve the critical thinking skills of all their children.
