Chess Club

The education secretary, a chess fanatic, wants to give chess a higher profile in schools to encourage the development of logic and problem-solving skills. (The Times, 2003)


He believes that if all our children played chess we would be a smarter nation. "Chess is a mind game. It forces you to think. It does involve developing strategy. If you tried to prove the case that playing chess helps you with GCSE's, that would be difficult, but it forces thinking. It's a game which develops logic and strategy and I'm in favour of it for that reason. The more people who play chess the better." (The Times, 2003)
