On 22 June 2007 DeMorgen reported:
Dr Ashley Deans has been headmaster of the Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment since 1991, in Fairfield, in the American state of Iowa. Deans is travelling around the world to promote his model of education. Recently, Dr Deans spoke at a three-day conference for promoting stress-free schools in Belgium, and important information from this conference was reported in the press.
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.
DeMorgen reported that the Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, offering primary and secondary grades, is like a role model for other schools offering Consciousness-Based Education. Year after year students in this school are at the top in American nationally standardized tests.
The article noted that the school has received more than a hundred prizes in scholarly, athletic, and fine arts competitions between schools at regional, national, and international levels. More than 95 per cent of the students go on to higher education. The idea of the 'stress-free school' was given high priority by The New York Times in the list of 'best ideas for 2005', a record year for the Maharishi School winning prizes in different competitions, the article stated.
Because of the success of the Maharishi School, the US National Institute of Health gave 20 million dollars in grants to the scientific research on the influence of Transcendental Mediation on health and intellectual development, according to the article.
