An idea to reduce truancy

There is no longer a need to skip classes and studying in order to play chess. Symbiosis University in Pune, India has launched a three-year diploma in the royal game. The course of study is being developed with the support of "Grandmaster Abhijeet Kunte, Mrunalinee Aurangabadkar, Chandrashekhar Gokhale and yoga experts Dr Nitin Unkule and Dr Bhaskar Shejwal..." As for the teaching staff, "...students [will] learn ... from reputed chess players..." Unfortunately, The article doesn't explain the hiring criteria for "reputed chess players."
