Million Dollar Idea: Remote Year for Families (& Teachers)

From the wishful thinking department.

Remote Year is a program for singles (and couples without kids) to spend a year working remotely while they travel around the world. They spend something like a month in each country, and all the logistics are handled by the organization.

Pretty cool, right?

So I was thinking, what if there was a Remote Year for families? Instead of a cohort of 50 singles traveling the world together, what if it was a mix of 10-12 families of 3-4 and 10-12 attached teachers and caregivers to ensure the children got a real, lasting benefit?

Suppose it was $1,600/month per parent and $400/month per [ school-aged ] child—and 100% free for the teachers and caregivers who tend to the children so the parents can work.

We’re already well on our way to paying teachers nothing at all. The least we could do is give them a trip around the world with a small, manageable class size, and actually engaged parents.

If you can make it work, tips are appreciated. Lulz.
