WHY THIS SUMMIT?
This national summit will explore the research and classroom applications of the innovative, evidence-based Quiet Time program for overcoming stress and improving learning readiness and academic performance. The event will highlight the outcomes of the Quiet Time program for students, faculty, and entire schools.
The Quiet Time program has been incorporated in public, charter, and private schools nationwide, including one district where more than 1,000 students, faculty, administrators, and staff in four public schools have learned Transcendental Meditation over the past five years.

KEY RESEARCH RESULTS
Scientific research studies have documented positive changes in these schools after the program was implemented.
For example, one middle school saw a dramatic decrease in suspension rates, and significant improvement in math scores among low performing students, compared to other middle schools in the same city.
Recent controlled studies in other schools have shown significant improvements in test scores, daily attendance, and graduation rates, along with reductions in anxiety and substance abuse among meditating students.
Research has also shown reductions in anxiety, depression, anger, fatigue, absence due to illness, and turnover rate among teachers.
