Applications for two proposed new Maharishi Free Schools in the UK have been submitted to the government; organizers of the initiative expect to hear something fairly soon about the outcome of the application process.

'Everything is on track,' said Dr Peter Warburton, Chairman of Maharishi Foundation UK, adding that 'we've made our best offering.'

Maharishi School clearly enjoys a strong reputation, Dr Warburton said, mentioning that two places in the existing school in Skelmersdale, West Lancashire, England—the first Maharishi Free School in the UK—recently became available.

When free places come up, the process demands the available spots be advertised and assigned randomly to avoid favoritism.

'Immediately after the ad went out there were 59 applications for those two places . . . with parents indicating that their child was the right age and this was their first choice of school . . . ,' Dr Warburton said. 'So that gives a little indication of the reputation of Maharishi School.'

He concluded that this may bode well for the two applications for new Maharishi Free Schools. 'It does show the demand for the Maharishi School type of education. . . . The parents, teachers, and children really know that this is the education they want.'
