CiS Statistics (2016 update)
Thursday, 03 March 2016 10:42
We provide a breakdown of the information that we received in answer to our questionnaires of 2011-2014.

The two files describe the state of chess in schools as:

pdfA: part of the curriculum (but see also this important document), support received from various ministries (Yes/No) and whether the CiS program is tun by the national chess federation/FIDE or other.
pdfB: Total number of schools in the country, number of schools in the CiS programme, how many children are involved, the number of schoolteachers providing chess teaching, the number of chess trainers coming into the schools from outside to provide chess teaching, bourse availability and whether the federation is aware of the FIDE Student Membership programme.

All these figures are hard to verify, but we can be sure that more than 12 million children were receiving chess instruction in schools around the world in 2014.

ECU-EDU conducted a survey of the 54 member federations from summer 2015. [Details of the findings:]

My responsibilities at the US Chess Federation include educational consulting and training with educators and chess leaders across the country. Sometimes the consultation is done by phone or email. At other times, the consultation is done on location with the dual purpose of developing new opportunities within that community. In addition, I often have the chance to present at regional or state education conferences or lead professional development for teachers. These presentations are instrumental in helping chess become an accepted teaching tool within the education community. Below are some of the highlights of 2013.

May - Flagstaff, Arizona – Ted Komada;  Explored the possibilities of a district-wide chess initiative as well as the development of a STEM-related chess camp.
