At this David Lynch Foundation–hosted National Education Summit, New York’s educational leaders convened at the Paley Center for Media to learn about the data behind the Transcendental Meditation–based Quiet Time program, which has delivered educational breakthroughs at schools across the country. The event was co-hosted by philanthropist and entrepreneur Russell Simmons and DLF President John Hagelin. Presenters included:

Soledad O’Brien, host of CNN’s Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien, and Pedro Noguera, Peter L. Agnew Professor of Education at New York University, presented via video to charge the audience to seriously consider the implications behind this data.

Based on the success of the summit, several schools in the tri-state area have applied for a David Lynch Foundation grant to implement the Quiet Time program in their schools.
