On 7 April 2009 Telegraph Journal, Canada East reported: A portion of the funds raised by the benefit concert for the David Lynch Foundation held in New York City, USA on 4 April will offer 250 students in Saint John, Canada the opportunity to learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme. 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.

According to Transcendental Meditation Teacher Christopher Collrin, 'Research shows that academic performance rises and problem behaviours decline in participating schools,' the Telegraph Journal reported.

Funds for students to learn Transcendental Meditation were raised at the recent concert in New York organized by the David Lynch Foundation, featuring Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and many other celebrities. The goal of the foundation is to raise sufficient funds to 'teach one million at-risk kids to meditate', the Telegraph Journal stated.

'A growing number of principals' the article reported, 'are offering it to their students and teachers to help reduce stress and violence in many of America's schools.'

Other students and faculty have been taking advantage of Transcendental Meditation programmes offered at a First Nations reserve in Maine, in the United States.

'The students themselves are reporting that they are doing better in math and sciences,' Mr Collrin was quoted as saying.

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.
