Mindfulness transforms a school community

From Fight School to Peace School

This is a powerful video segment about the dramatic effects of a mindfulness program in a San Francisco middle school.  The principal of what was once called "Fight School" was so desperate that he finally agreed to try mindfulness.  He even agreed to add 30 minutes on to the school day so that every single student had a chance to practice mindfulness for 15 minutes in the morning and 15 minutes at the end of the day.  The results are miraculous.  Check it out:
