order xanax online cod At first glance, Quiet Time – a stress reduction strategy used in several San Francisco middle and high schools, as well as in scattered schools around the Bay Area – looks like something out of the om-chanting 1960s. Twice daily, a gong sounds in the classroom and rowdy adolescents, who normally can’t sit still for 10 seconds, shut their eyes and try to clear their minds.

If San Francisco schools Superintendent Richard Carranza has his way, Quiet Time could well spread citywide. valium 20 mg dosage

In this neighborhood, gunfire is as common as birdsong – nine shootings have been recorded in the past month – and most students know someone who’s been shot or did the shooting. Murders are so frequent that the school employs a full-time grief counselor.

Absenteeism rates were among the city’s highest and so were suspensions. Worn-down teachers routinely called in sick. Unsurprisingly, academics suffered.

In the first year of Quiet Time, the number of suspensions fell by 45 percent. Within four years, the suspension rate was among the lowest in the city. Daily attendance rates climbed to 98 percent, well above the citywide average. Grade point averages improved markedly. About 20 percent of graduates are admitted to Lowell High School – before Quiet Time, getting any students into this elite high school was a rarity.

At Burton High School, for instance, students in the program report significantly less stress and depression, and greater self-esteem, than nonparticipants. buy soma in tallahassee buy cheap klonopin online With stress levels down, achievement has markedly improved, particularly among students who have been doing worst academically. Grades rose dramatically, compared with those who weren’t in the program.On the California Achievement Test, twice as many students in Quiet Time schools have become proficient in English, compared with students in similar schools where the program doesn’t exist, and the gap is even bigger in math.

That’s where Quiet Time can have a major impact, and I’d like to see it expand well beyond a handful of schools.”

That’s reason enough to make meditation a school staple, and not just in San Francisco.David L.
