Due to the great success of the first Maharishi Free School in England, the Maharishi School Trust is looking to open two new schools in London and Suffolk in 2013.
Dr Peter Warburton, Chairman of Maharishi Foundation UK, described the process of petitioning the government for support for these new schools.
'We had applied for the first Maharishi Free School in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, last year,' he said, 'in an area where there had been a successful Maharishi School for 25 years, and local people and parents had already come to know of the great benefits of education there.'
Now they are going into new areas where there has not been a Maharishi School before—advertising, talking to people, and gauging the level of public interest in having a Maharishi Free School.
Advertisements are being placed 'in the newspapers, in the school papers, in the teachers' papers. There are many press articles coming out, there are banners across the high street, there are posters up in the shops.' Leaflets are also being handed out to young parents.
So far the response has been very encouraging, Dr Warburton said (see 'UK: Local communities embrace potential new Maharishi Free Schools').
