Schools The Quiet Time Program has been introduced across the nation and world in schools as a stress reduction and cognitive development technique (Transcendental Meditation) with broad effects. Hundreds of studies have been published on the effects of two 15-minute meditations on social-emotional health, school violence, academic performance, and attendance rates. Many of the schools are low-income urban schools where poverty, violence, and fear impact learning and overall health. TM has been shown to have powerful benefits in reducing stress and improving the quality of life for students and teachers alike.
