"Maybe Teach Them Math, Science, and Chess"

Bonnie Trafelet for Chicago News Cooperative

I did not mention the Susan Polgar World Open for Boys and Girls, held October 7-10 in Oak Brook, because of pending litigation involving the U.S. Chess Federation that I really don't want to discuss here.

But this New York Times article (James Warren is, I assume, not Helen's husband, but the former editor of the Tempo section of the Chicago Tribune?) is too good to pass up.  Local teaching legend Shiva Maharaj is prominently featured.
