Meditation Improves Kids Test Scores
The study on Transcendental Meditation (TM) was conducted among 189 middle school students. Psych Central reports:
Students who practiced the Transcendental Meditation program showed significant increases in math and English scale scores and performance level scores over a one-year period.A significant portion of the meditating students — 41 percent — showed a gain of at least one performance level in math, compared to 15 percent of the non-meditating students in the control group.Among the students with the lowest levels of academic performance, “below basic” and “far below basic,” the meditating students showed a significant improvement in overall academic achievement compared to students in the control group, which showed only a slight gain.
