School replaces detention with meditation

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE, MD (WKOW) -- Instead of going to detention when acting out, kids at a school in Baltimore can meditate.

Students at Coleman Elementary School have "mindfulness" classes woven into their day.  The school has a Mindful Moment Room where students are given a chance to calm down.

A first grade teacher says, "95% of my class who goes out for the mindful room, they come back and they'll be at peace and at work."

Holistic Life Foundation says it wants to expand the success they've seen in Baltimore to school across the country.
