On 5 May 2006 NEA TODAY reported:
The David Lynch Foundation has donated US$150,000 to introduce a scientifically validated programme to improve US education. The May issue of the National Education Association's magazine reported that six public schools will receive $25,000 each so that they can offer the Transcendental Meditation Technique to their students.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of education.
Students and teachers at the schools will practise the TM Technique for about ten minutes each day. The article reports that the Transcendental Meditation Technique improves both 'well-being and academic performance' of students.
NEA Today cited two recent studies. One 'found that sixth-graders had higher self-esteem and more control over emotions after meditating'. The other found lower blood pressure in high school students who practise the Transcendental Meditation Technique. The first study was conducted by researchers in Michigan, the second by a researcher from the Medical College of Georgia.
