- Can Meditation in Schools Increase Student Bandwith?
Crime and Education Lab New York is partnering with the David Lynch Foundation to implement the Quiet Time program, which provides students with training and time to practice meditation, for two 15-minute periods every day, with the goal of increasing students’ cognitive bandwidth and their ability to focus and learn. This program was introduced and evaluated in the Chicago Public Schools, with promising results. Now Quiet Time is being expanded to New York City, and Crime and Education Lab’s randomized evaluation aims to generate rigorous evidence about the potential of mediation to support students and improve outcomes in America’s largest city.

- David Lynch Foundation origins - The Stewardship Report
By Soledad O’Brien. New York, N.Y. It all started with a deep desire… to alleviate stress and promote peace in the lives of people everywhere… by giving them the gift of meditation… For years, David Lynch had heard of students going to school carrying guns; heard of the tens of millions of children taking drugs for learning disorders, anxiety, depression, even high blood pressure. He read that seventy percent of students with mental health problems were not getting the help they need, and that the third-leading cause of death among teenagers… is suicide.
