On 29 April 2005 Augusta Chronicle reported: Researchers are seriously studying the effects of meditation on school children, hoping to show that it has many benefits for youths. One on-going study is researching the effects of the Transcendental Meditation Programme on children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder - a study that is already showing promising results. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of education.

The Augusta Chronicle article listed a number of studies currently underway in classrooms around the US. The Transcendental Meditation Programme, yoga, and other meditations and relaxation techniques are being offered to help reduce stress and help children control behaviour.

'Most people have never been taught how to deal with stress,' Medical College of Georgia researcher Vernon Barnes was quoted as saying. 'In school, for example, we don't teach the kids how to deal with stress like we should. That's why we've started these types of programmes.'

Researcher Sarina Grosswold, who is conducting the TM study, told the Augusta Chronicle that while her data is still preliminary, she hopes the positive results will make more schools take notice of the technique's potential.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
