GSC take note: you mentioned in your OPMS version of a Plan that, were I
to pursue my agenda of launching 1, 12, 42, 92... within "kid culture" in
Bangalore, I might start by finding an ally within the school system, a
grade school teacher you said, and I quote:

"""
1. Some grade-school teacher (or someone else, probably someone like KU
interested in that Mission) would choose the Mission and decide that it's
worth applying OPMS to it. Essential (or at least highly useful)
desideratum: that grade-school teacher (or KU, or whoever) should have at
least a 'fair' understanding of 'S' (or whatever else he of which he or she
wishes to boost the grade-school understanding).

2. That grade-school teacher (or KU, or whoever) should also been keen on
working in and with grade-schools.
"""
[ http://mathforum.org/kb/thread.jspa?threadID=2662629&messageID=9656378 ]

However, lets assume that the Bangalore school system is hostile to this
material, for the sake of modeling purposes. Our content is subversive,
disruptive, verboten or whatever.

It's like we're playing this videogame in which Mafia bosses in charge of
the School on the Hill are not about to allow our content. That's a
plot-driving premise. [0] We need to counter a School that is actively
opposing us and trying to anticipate our next maneuver. Can OPMS handle
that do you think?

So what's our next counter-move?

The students commute from home to school and from school to home. They're
home alone a lot of the time, or even if guardians are present, they have
bandwidth and access to our servers.

As you've seen in this earlier math-teach thread [1], I'm a big believer in
the right to home school, apparently not a freedom in Germany. [2]

So like Ralph Nader and Vance Packard, I'm focused on the use of that 3rd
parent, what we used to call the Boob Tube (TV), but now we call Youtube (a
Google service).

So here, for example, we reach them at home, in a medium they understand
(heavy metal music video), with information about the NCLB polyhedron,
which you'll see go by quickly at 1 min 15 secs.

[ I know it's hard to for you to view Youtubes but I'm also writing for
other GST + Agile team players who share my interest in advancing our
BFI.org-displayed agenda around "design science" ]

I hope you'll join us someday in helping the kids of Bangalore. In the
meantime, Agile will shoulder the task and go it alone without OPMS
appearing to have much to offer.

[0] you may be uncomfortable with my "gang" style jargon but if you check
Robert Anton Wilson's encyclopedia of mythic conspiracies, you find mine
(GRUNCH) is known for this way of talking and thinking, so lets say I'm
being true to form (this is the style expected).
