One of San Francisco's toughest schools transformed by the power of meditation There was a time when Visitacion Valley middle school in San Francisco could have featured in a gritty US crime drama. Surrounded by drugs and gang violence, the kids were stressed out and agitated. One day children came in to find three dead bodies dumped in the schoolyard. “In 2006 there were 38 killings in our neighbourhood,” says Barry O’Driscoll, the school’s head of physical education (PE).

In 2007 a meditation programme called Quiet Time was brought in to meet some of these challenges.
