On 22 March 2011 Medical News Today reported:
The Transcendental Meditation technique may be an effective approach to improve math and English academic achievement in low-performing students, according to a new study published in the journal Education.
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 study was conducted at a California public middle school with 189 students who were below proficiency level in English and math. Students who practiced the Transcendental Meditation program showed significant increases in math and English scale scores and performance level scores over a one-year period.
''This initial research, showing the benefits of the Quiet Time/Transcendental Meditation program on academic achievement, holds promise for public education,'' said Sanford Nidich, EdD, lead author and professor of education at Maharishi University of Management. ''The findings suggest that there is an easy-to-implement, value-added educational program which can help low-performing minority students begin to close the achievement gap,'' said Dr. Nidich.
