Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, hosted a delegation from Ukraine in April. The group of six Ukrainians spent the morning and afternoon touring classrooms in the elementary, middle and high schools. They shared stories about their native country and, on at least one occasion, treated the students to classical Ukrainian folk songs.

In Barbara Hays's middle school math class, the school's international character was on full display. Students were asked to stand if they or their parents were from another country, and more than half of the students rose to their feet. Members of the delegation said they were greatly impressed with the diversity they saw in the school.

All of the Ukrainians in the delegation practice TM and hope the practice becomes widespread in their own country. Several commented on how much they liked Maharishi Vedic City in particular because of the way the city was laid out according to Vedic principles and that the buildings were built according to Maharishi Vastu architectural designs.
