What would happen, in the States anyway, is fundamentalists would swoop in complaining about Hindu practices in the schools. They'd demand prayer instead. As it is, evangelicals are running a bible study extracurricular activity at the school where I work. I'm waiting for pagans to catch wind of this and set up a few rituals. Perhaps meditation could be presented in health classes connected with physical exercise.

I think that mediation is great for all ages, but Richard is probably right about the fundamentalist reaction. I introduce breathing, drumming and movement exercises to my kids and grandkids and they love it. Also, I realize that touch or physical interaction is a forbidden subject in most classes, but when children learn to self administer some touch activity it helps them become calm and relieve anger and tension.
The parents and teachers should learn to give each other a massage while being aware of their breathing so that they are less reactive with their kids and can learn to understand and appreciate their exhuberance as well.
