Transcendental Meditation positively impacts student graduation rates    
Effect of the Transcendental Meditation Program on Graduation, College Acceptance and Dropout Rates for Students Attending an Urban Public High School
High school graduation rates remain low with racial and ethnic gaps adding to the decline. Graduating versus dropping out translates into higher earning potential, less crime and incarceration, and less dependence on government assistance. A new study published in the journal Education shows practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique resulted in a 15 percent higher graduation rate compared to controls. In low academically performing students a 25 percent difference in graduation rates was observed.

Here is a link to that great article written by Richard Gray, Science Correspondent for The Telegraph, published June 11, 2013: Transcendental Meditation may boost student grades. Under the photo of the Beatles with Maharishi in Rishikesh, India, he says, It may have seemed simply a phase in pop history, but it seems the Beatles may have been on to something after all during their fabled journey to India. The following day the Daily Mail came out with their report on the study, also mentioning the Beatles, using the photo of them with Maharishi when they first met in England.
