A survey of parents has shown a very high level of satisfaction with Maharishi Free School, Skelmersdale, England. Carried out last January at the start of the school's second term as a Free School, the survey was proposed and implemented by the mother of one of the new children enrolled the previous September. Parents were given a questionnaire and the replies to just about every question were 100% positive.

In answer to the question, ''Are you happy with Maharishi School so far?'' 89% of parents said that they were 'very happy' and 11% said that they were 'happy'. Asked if the school met their expectations, 43% felt that the school exceeded their expectations while 57% said that it met their expectations. 80% felt that their child's experience at Maharishi School was an improvement on that at previous schools, and 100% said that they would recommend the school to others.

Parents in other parts of England have also supported the possibility of having their children attend a Maharishi Free School. One parent wrote, ''The Maharishi School is like a dream come true for us. . . . it meets the needs of so many parents for whom the private sector is too expensive or too pressured, but for whom the state schools are too large and impersonal. We . . . feel that an environment which is punctuated by times of stillness and silence can only promote learning and clear-headedness.'' The parent was referring to Transcendental Meditation, which is part of the Consciousness-Based Education curriculum at Maharishi Free School and which all students and faculty practise at the beginning and end of the school day.
