Now this is a genius idea. Robert W. Coleman School, an elementary school in Baltimore abolishes DETENTION. Sounds like the best school ever! Instead, the school chooses mediation over detention and the results are amazing. They don’t have a detention room anymore. Now, it’s the Mindful Moment Room. It’s painted in an “oasis of calm” with vivid colors. The after-school program is known as Holistic Me. It teaches kids to practice mindful meditation along with breathing exercises and encourages kids to talk with professionals in behavior. Partnered with the Holistic Life Foundation, this program is working wonders.
NOT ONE SUSPENSION SINCE THE PROGRAM WAS INTRODUCED TWO YEARS AGO!
