Meditation may improve test scores in kids

Posted:

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- Transcendental meditation appears to improve math and English scores in at-risk students.

Researchers divided about 200 low-performing middle school students into a twice daily meditation and a non-meditation group.

Meditating students showed significant academic improvement in all areas, with 41 percent increasing at least one level in math compared to only 15 percent of the non-meditating group.

Teachers surveyed as part of the study said meditation also resulted in calmer, happier, and less hyper students.
