At the Chess Educator of the Year February 24, 2009 at The University of Texas at Dallas, honoree Dr. Stephen Lipschultz described the research grant: “Think Like a King is partnering with The University of Texas at Dallas to apply for US Department of Education funding to establish the first ever large-scale multi-year research effort to, hopefully, fully validate and define the precise role of chess in education.

In order to be really meaningful, this kind of study must involve large numbers of schools and students using a consistent approach to teaching that can also validate that kids learn what they are supposed to.” If your school district is interested in being a part of this research, please email me < This email address is being protected from spambots.
