On 4 October 2007 Killeen Daily Herald reported: US schools are fully embracing the 'New Age' with a combination of new and ancient ways to learn. The use of modern technological devices has increased in US schools along with the age-old practice of meditation, which helps students focus and handle stress. 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.

Schools are trying to keep up with new advances in technology, and some administrators are using blogs (weblogs) as a new and speedy way to communicate with their staff and their student's parents.

Schools are also trying to stay on top by regularly upgrading their computers and creating new rules for the use of cell phones.

Along with this technological upgrade is an increased use of methods to help students fully develop as individuals.

The article stated 'A study on emotional development in middle school-aged children conducted by the University of Michigan concluded that students practicing Transcendental Meditation had significantly higher scores on three scales: positive effectivity, self-esteem and emotional competence.'

More schools are incorporating for this 'new-age approach to education', the article stated.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
