On 21 November 2007 The Jerusalem Post reported:
During his recent visit to Israel, Dr Ashley Deans presented the Transcendental Meditation Technique as a cost-effective, scientifically proven answer to the nation's educational difficulties.
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 Jerusalem Post reported that the 'solution to the troubles plaguing Israel's education system won't cost billions of shekels to fix. Moreover, there is no need to strike to demand it—it is ready and waiting. What is the solution? Twice daily Transcendental Meditation (TM), according to international expert Dr. Ashley Deans.'
Dr Deans, Director of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA received his PhD in physics from York University in Canada.
'According to Deans', the article stated, 'the major problem in education, and in the world in general, is stress. In education, stress is caused by the attempt to cram as much knowledge into a student's brain as possible and then teaching to the test. . . . TM reduces that stress, thus reducing violence, ADHD, and generally improving both students' and teachers' outlooks.'
'Transcendental Meditation moves the brain from agitated anxiety to restful alertness,' the article quoted Dr Deans as saying.
The Transcendental Meditation Programme 'has been introduced in 170 schools around the world, including other conflict areas such as Belfast and South Africa,' the article reported. Dr Deans noted that in the school in Belfast, improvements were obvious in just a few days.
The article reported that the programme is not religious, and that its benefits have been verified by more than 600 scientific studies conducted at universities around the world.
