Transcendental Meditation – TM program improves learning and behavior in San Francisco schools
Powerful changes are taking place in some of San Francisco’s most troubled schools as a result of the Quiet Time program and the Transcendental Meditation technique. In Visitacion Valley Middle School, students practicing the TM® technique for 15 minutes, twice a day, are showing significantly improved standardized test scores and dramatically diminished suspension rates. Says Jan Link, supervisor at the city’s Unified School District Research Office, “That 15 minutes twice a day is enough to make the difference. When you have a class that’s quiet, there’s focused concentration, and there’s joyful learning.”
