Hello.
Since when is it necessary to teach chess ending to students?

When they reach positions with extra material that they don't know how to win. Or defend to a drawn position and then lose it.

1) teach how the pieces move and value of pieces
2) teach forks, pins, skewers etc
3) teach basic mates
4) teach endings...

I once taught a junior 6 endgames in 30 minutes. 3 Kind and pawn(s) v King, two Rook and pawn v rook and a Bishop v Knight, where the Knight dominated. A small number of thoughts and ideas about the endgame is always useful to the improving chess player.
