Placing the larger concepts of MGML, the notions of child-centred learning and key ideas of J. Krishnamurti on education at the centre of analysis, this chapter documents the translation of these concepts in everyday classroom life in a rural context of the satellite schools of Rishi Valley. It explores the ‘School in a box’ tool used in these schools and its instrumentality in engendering classroom processes that re-center the child’s autonomy in the learning process by rearranging the use of time, space, objects, and teacher-student relationships in the classroom. It also explores the learning and living continuum between the school and community life, and corporeal experience of learning in the MGML classroom. It also discusses the challenges in the classroom including the management of multiple learning contexts in the MGML classroom and the dual role of the teacher as facilitator and continuous assessor.

Keywords:   ‘School in a box’, MGML classrooms, Satellite schools, Teacher-student relationships, Classroom management in MGML, Child centred learning, Holistic education, Challenges, Teaching Learning Material
