Det finns en intervju på Chess in Translation (innehåller flera mycket läsvärda artiklar) med den alltid intressante GM Vassily Ivanchuk från Ukraina. Den dök upp för några dagar sedan och är utförd av signaturen MISHANP.

What’s your attitude to the idea of introducing chess lessons into schools? Is that a possible means of intellectualising the nation?

Chess can have a place in schools, of course, but exclusively as an elective subject. Why torture children with chess if they don’t like it? Those children who like it, on the other hand, should go to chess clubs. By the way, since the second half of December 2011 the Vassily Ivanchuk Chess School has been operating in Lviv. Children are going to study there from the age of five.
