  3. Free Personal Finance Website from the University of Idaho [via Consumerist] - Great for lessons on real world math.
  4. The 'youngest headmaster in the world' [via Wired:GeekDad] - Have you heard the story of the Indian teenager who comes home from school and teaches what he learns to hundreds of children in his village who can't afford to go?  If not, you need to.
