Report on Transcendental Meditation brings uneasy calm

1st May 2009 at 01:00

Your piece about Sir Paul McCartney's potential sponsorship of the private Maharishi School could have done with a little more balance, apart from the rather neutral quote you included at the end.

Transcendental Meditation is rooted in Hindu spirituality, and upgrading the private school to academy status surely entitles it to the same sort of (balanced) kicking that The TES gives to faith groups seeking to enhance their remit.

Or have you been hypnotised by the possible involvement of a national living treasure?
