US based family looking to do a 12 month sabbatical around the world. The theme will be targeted towards the education of their 13 year old daughter, 8th grade, in a homeschool curriculum with tutelage from professionals in respective fields in all countries visited. There is no set number of countries or timelines. Project to match US schooling sessions beginning in September 2013 and ending at the latest August 2014.
Languages (spanish), Culture, History, Mathematics, English language arts (grammar, reading, writing, poetry), following a specific curriculum will be followed and emphasized depending on the highlights of each location chosen. For example, a one month stay in Oxford would entail daily immersion in English classes and European history. A one month stay in Uruguay would be spanish centric while always following the rest of the curriculum. While in Osaka Japan, the focus could be on asian history, meditation, aikido, etc.
Family is looking to outsource the research and the creation of a comprehensive evolving database to establish all resources available in each location. This would encompass but not limited to housing, weather, social and cultural activities and centers, tutors, drivers, travel reservations, abroad support networks, expat database and communication, personal network and outreach.
Parents will have a hands on project management responsibility but intend to outsource many aspects of the tutelage to experts in corresponding fields. Daughters interests are in fashion, dance, music.
The route should be around the world in either direction following most favorable weather patterns.
Countries/cities of interest are:
Japan or China
