Reviewing that response of mine, I believe a few points may be worth amplifying/clarifying (to the extent this is possible in the 'pure prose mode' to which we're restricted here).
1. I have suggested that our educational systems (both in the USA and in India) are in a real mess - and that the 'stakeholders in the system' don't have a clue about how to 'clear up' that mess. (Again, my apologies for using that much-disliked term "stakeholders" - I'm unable to find another suitable one that 'encompasses' the group I need to describe).
2. I've also suggested that all it requires to 'clear up' (most, if not all) the messes is simply that the 'stakeholders' in the system learn how to *integrate* their available good ideas (and also how to get rid of their many bad ideas that are also floating around the 'mindspace'). I have in fact been suggesting some very practical means to accomplish this needed integration.
Based on the seminal contributions to systems science of the late John N. Warfield, I've designed an extremely simple tool (which I call the 'One Page Management System' [OPMS]) that enables those 'stakeholders' in any system most effectively to *integrate* their good ideas in support of any 'Mission' - and tp help them get rid of their bad ideas that are always floating around the'mindspace'.
This practical means is simple enough for any reasonably intelligent high-school student to understand within just a day or two how to accomplish the needed *integration* of available good ideas on a 'Mission' of interest to him/her. Of course, it may well take considerably more time actually to accomplish a chosen Mission - this depends on the complexity of the chosen Mission.
In response to such suggestion that it's not really difficult to learn how to tackle 'system problems' that we need only to learn how to integrate our available good ideas, Robert Hansen has responded with outright falsehoods, utterly foolish jibes and meaningless questions. All of which is intended only to take the discussion off-track - see, for example his post dt. Jul 6, 2014 11:08 PM (http://mathforum.org/kb/message.jspa?messageID=9512031) for some instances of 'Foolish Questions From Robert Hansen'.
3. I claim that it should take no longer than a couple of years (at most) to develop an *effective* Action Plan to rectify many of the ills of the education system. Implementation of various elements of the Action Plan could start almost immediately.
This is, of course, assuming that the 'kibitzers' do not succeed in diverting the attention of the genuine stakeholders from their 'Mission' whatever it may be (say, "to develop an effective set of educational systems for the nation").
In fact, measurable results should start becoming available within just a month or two of startup, just as soon as the stakeholders have understood the process by applying it to some 'simple' test issues of interest.
