At any given time I have several Crazy Awesome ideas.  One I’m thinking about:  

Why not take my 10 year old out of school for a year, and do a curriculum entirely based on high-seas piracy?  Because, really, what can’t you learn from pirates?  Geography, physics, econonomics, history, literature, music.  When you consider modern-day piracy, there are lessons to be learned about failed states and indigenous freedom movements and organized crime.   Take all that?  Pair it with real-life sailing lessons.  Voila! Education!  

I’d call it School for Pirates.
