Infographic: Meditation in Schools Across America

As a growing body of research points to positive outcomes from meditation in schools, programs are spreading across the country.


The Teachers' Rating Scale of Social Competence is incorrectly attributed to Schonert-Reichl & Miller 2005; it should be attributed to Schonert-Reichl & Lawlor 2010.

At Antioch University New England, we have a certificate program for teachers who want to use mindfulness to improve their own teaching practice. It's had great results in terms of helping teacher reduce stress. You can learn more at antiochne.edu or contact Susan Dreyer Leon at SDreyerLeon@antioch.edu (She's also @MindfulEducator on Twitter) I'd really encourage anyone who wants to learn more to be in touch- even if you aren't looking to enroll in a class or program. She's a wealth of resources on this topic.
