  1. The Mayor will appoint a City Education Officer initially, that citizens can replace using registration of Approvals
  2. The Education Officer will initially appoint Principals in schools run by the Municipal Corporation. The teachers will be selected with a 3 year contract open competitive exams. There will be transfer every year. Transfers will be via random matching only.
  3. Jury procedure for/against a school teacher : If there is a complain against a school teacher, and prima-facie doubt is established, a Jury of 10 citizens will be summoned. If over 7 Jurors decide that the teacher is misfit to serve the students, the teachers will be transferred to a different school. After 3 such transfers, he will be expelled.
         The procedure of replacement of District Education Officer will alone go long way to improve education, and so will procedure to expel the teachers.



3.    Saatya System for Maths Education


Questions, Exams and Rewards
  1. The system will have a list of thousands of Maths questions for each of the 12 standards. Questions will be multiple choice. The list will be published and will be in public domain.
  2. Depending on the availability of resources, the District Education Officer will setup 1-4 exams per month for each students
  3. Each exam will have 30-120 questions randomly chosen from the list for that quarter. Duration would be 1-3 minutes per question. Each exam will have 500-1000-more students
  4. There would be monthly cash rewards for students/teachers based on the performance in the exams. These cash rewards will be the ONLY funding that Maths teachers and schools will get from the state. There will no salary for the Maths teacher.
  5. The rewards can be as follows: Say Rs. 10 for each student and his teacher who gets (Average - 10%) and Rs. 20 each student and his teacher who gets more marks than (Average + 10%). Also, each parent gets additional 25% of what the student gets. In addition, for students after class V, additional 25% of what the student got goes to his teachers of past 2 years. The exact amount of the reward will depend on the money allocated to DEO that year.
Administration of Exams
  1. The testing centers would be operated by District Education Officer.
  2. The DEO will arrange for the buildings, desks, computer terminals, servers, printing reports, allocating rewards etc. for the testing centers using the taxes he collects. DEO would appoint clerks, supervisor, assistants etc. to run test center. The citizens may expel an employee using Jury Trial.
  3. DEO, or his clerks, using random choice, will instruct a student to go to a testing center near his school/home. For each month, the testing center can be different. Each student will get a different desk in test. This reduces the chances of cheating.
  4. The server computer, upon the instruction of the supervisor, will randomly choose 60 questions from a list of 1000s public domain questions.
  5. Each student will get the same 30-60 questions in different random order. Thus two students sitting next to each other will be getting questions in a different order. The server will not allow the student to change the answer to a question after he has answered it. The server will allow at most 5 minutes per question. This will make the exam cheat proof.
  6. The DEO will pay the rewards for all the tests of that month before 10th of next month.
  7. Testing cost will be below Rs 5 per test, not counting the land cost.
Dispensing Rewards for Maths Exams
  1. If over 95% students answered a question or if less than 5% students answered a question, the DEO will not count that question at all.
  2. The DEO will decide number of tests to be conducted for each subject for a given class. For example, lets say that DEO decides that every month, there will be 2 Maths test, 1 Physics tests, 1 Chemistry tests, 1 Biology test, 2 Law tests etc.
  3. The software will issue the points right after the exam.
Selection of Maths teacher in Saatya System
  1. In the system I described, any person can register himself as a Maths teacher.
  2. The parent of the child will decide which Maths teacherís class his child will attend. The parents can change the teacher any month.



4.    Saatya System for other Subjects


         The system I described can be used for many subjects such as
  1. Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology etc)
  2. English vocabulary, grammar, sentence construction, translating sentences from English to another language and vice versa. (not English Literature)
  3. Hindi (vocabulary, grammar, sentence construction, sentence translation, not literature)
  4. Other languages (vocabulary, grammar, sentence construction, sentence translation, not literature)
  5. Military History, Technology History, Law History (no culture, arts, music, interpretations etc)
  6. Geography , map-making and surveying practicals at Local/District levels



5.    Providing Legal Education


  1. A group of 15-20 students will be asked to attend complete session of a few cases in a court-room.
  2. once the case is over, they would be asked to discuss and write their opinions covering the following issues (analysis)
  3. was the punishment (or acquittal) fair? was the form of punishment (prison, fine etc.) fair?
  4. what exact laws were applicable in this case? are these laws fair?
  5. what were the evidences? were these evidences fair? Etc etc
  6. discuss and write about following (synthesis)
  7. what should have been the laws, if the laws were unfair?
  8. is the text of the law simple enough to understand? can you provide simpler text?
  9. what should have been the punishment in your opinion?
  10. could anything have been done to stop that crime?
  11. is there anything that would have made the trial faster? simpler? Etc etc
  12. Each case would invoke new issues. Much of the plan would be left to the teacher/students. The students would be supervised by a teacher for 1-2 hr. a week. It would be more interesting if schools can ask retired judges or a retired/practicing lawyers or a technical expert in the field of the case to occasionally participate in the discussion.
  13. The students would be asked to take cases in the subordinate as well as higher courts.
  14. The cases would be chosen at random.
  15. The texts will also have information on actual things (corruption, nepotism, atrocities etc) that do happen in administration and courts



6.    Providing weapon use education


         MRCM Party promises to provide Military training to all adults and children above 16.



7.    Providing English Education


         MRCM promises to provide English education to all citizens from age of 5 years to 80 years. All textbooks from class-I to colleges will be made bilingual i.e. odd numbered pages will be English translation of the even numbered pages in the local language. This will apply for all subjects, Maths, Sciences, Law etc. The students will be free to write exams of these subjects in local languages and in addition can also write second optional exam of these subjects in English. The score of second exams will not carry any weight.
