This title explores one promising solution that has been tested in several dozen public schools – a self-regulatory technique called mindfulness that increases kids' focus, concentration, self-awareness, and impulse control. It presents a hopeful story of transformation, following a young mindfulness teacher, Megan Cowan, as she spends several months attempting to teach the technique to kids in a San Francisco public middle school that tops the district in disciplinary suspensions.

Whatever experiences students bring to school there is a greater chance for a positive outcome when skills are taught over time and used so that the students can use them beyond the classroom time.
