For background reading, you can apt-get install debian-policy and
look at the menu-policy document, and also at the policy-process

Then I suppose you could subscribe to debian-policy and fill them in on
the details of what we have discussed here on debian-devel, providing a
URL to the relevant threads in the debian-devel archives (see
http://lists.debian.org/#debian-devel and/or lists.debian.org/search). I'm
sure they can answer any remaining questions you may have after reading
the docs about making a formal policy proposal for education's inclusion
in the menu system and see it become a part of our menu subpolicy.

The addition of an "education" section in the package archives is a
separate issue and should therefore be pursued separately from the
education menu section policy.
