The article features Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.
The school takes any student—there are no entrance exams. Yet, consistently, year after year, the students' scores on standardized tests are in the top 1% of all US schools. They win speech and drama competitions, tennis titles, and poetry awards. The students of this school have won four world championships, more than any other school in the world, in the creative problem-solving competition, Destination ImagiNation.
Dr Ashley Deans, Executive Director of Maharishi School, finds himself repeatedly asked, 'Where do you keep finding these creative students year after year?' He emphasizes that he doesn't go out and find them. 'We take any student,' he says, 'and we allow them to find the source of their own infinite creativity and intelligence deep within themselves.'
In a talk in the Distinguished Speakers Series, Dr Deans elucidates the fundamental problems in education, and how to solve them. He describes his school's system of education, Consciousness-Based Education, which can transform a mediocre student into a great one and which can satisfy a student's quest for total knowledge.
