A study published in the June 2013 issue of the journal Education found that the Transcendental Meditation technique was associated with higher graduation rates compared to controls.

Analysis of school records at an East Coast urban high school in the USA was conducted with all 235 students enrolled during their senior year to determine on-time graduation. Findings showed a 15% higher graduation rate for the entire meditating group compared to non-meditating controls, after taking into account student grade point average. Subgroup analysis further indicated a 25% difference in graduation rates when considering only the low academic performing students in both groups.

''Students need to be provided with value-added educational programs that can provide opportunities for school success,'' said lead author Robert D. Colbert, director of Neag School of Education's Diversity Council at the University of Connecticut. ''Our study investigated one such program, Transcendental Meditation, which appears to hold tremendous promise for enriching the lives of our nation's students.''
