The political camps rarely agree on anything in Spain. However, when it comes to chess in schools, politicians from all parties represented in the education commission of the Spanish Parliament came together to support the introductio of chess in schools, as reports El Paìs in its English edition. Although their decision is not immediately allocating resources, this is a major opportunity and has been accomplished by two initiators: Pablo Martìn, a member of parliament (here´s a video of his speech in parliament – in Spanish) and journalist Leontxo Garcìa, who was a speaker at our conferences in 2013 and 2014.
