Dr Richard Beall, principal of Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, recently visited several primary and secondary schools in China which are interested in implementing Consciousness-Based Education, or in forming partnerships with Maharishi School.
Dr Beall first visited a secondary school in a large city in eastern China, which is part of a consortium of top secondary institutions in the region. Leaders of the school had already visited Maharishi School in spring 2010, but now showed even greater enthusiasm towards the idea of establishing a partnership between the two schools. The principal of the school wishes to establish a new secondary school which will feature Consciousness-Based Education, and where students will spend their final year studying at Maharishi School in Fairfield.
Also on the China tour, Dr Beall visited a prestigious secondary institution in another large city, which has 3,000 of the brightest students in the country. The campus of the school was renovated in 2001, and now features state-of-the-art facilities, including an art gallery of students' work, and a 'science hallway' featuring murals of great scientists. One of the school's leaders practises the Transcendental Meditation Programme, and has visited Maharishi School in Fairfield. Students at the school in China have also competed with Maharishi School students in a robotics competition. The principal is interested in forming a partnership with the school in Fairfield.
Finally, Dr Beall toured a primary school in western China, which is housed in a beautiful facility, and has 2,500 students. The school signed a Memorandum of Amicable Relationship with Maharishi School. 'It was inspiring to hear how compatible our mission was with theirs,' commented Dr Beall.
Dr Beall looks forward to further developing relationships with these three schools in China.
