Crash Course promotion at a homeschool site

We homeschool our kids and I thought this was interesting - http://www.homeschoolfreebie.wholesomechildhood.com/april-4-the-crash-course/.

We do as well, and I'm

We do as well, and I'm walking my sons through the Crash Course segments on this site.  I consider the resource invaluable, and I'm letting them know I believe this information is as vital to their futures as many of the other values we are trying to promote. 

Thank you, Chris.  What you are doing has shaken me awake.

CC as an educational resource

 

 Just wondering if any conventional schools have considered using the Crash Course as an educational resource. Chris is excellent at conveying complex interdisciplinary material in an easy to understand form.

 Whether you act on it or not, the CC is valuable simply as an integrated introduction to Economics and Energy...

<sarcasm>How could Dr. Martenson's material possibly be used in a traditional school?  As far as I know, he hasn't taken all of those courses that teach you how to teach.  There's no way you can be a good teacher without that.  He may even want to teach math and science without using a calculator.</sarcasm>
