the-movement-of-meditation-replacing-detention-in-one-baltimore-schoolSome schools are replacing detention with meditation, and science is backing them up.  You might not expect to find inner peace inside a bustling elementary school, but a growing number of students in Baltimore are learning just that. Instead of punishing disruptive kids or sending them to the principal’s office, the Baltimore school has something called the Mindful Moment Room instead. They start each day with deep breathing, and if the kids misbehave, they’re not sent to the principal’s office, but to the meditation room. CBS Reporter Tony Dokoupil explains to us about the program from two brothers who grew up in the neighborhood to help cope and deal with major issues living in Baltimore. They hope they can implement there program in other schools.
