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.
