cruising w/ kids/homeschooling

Wife and I love to sail, now have 2 girls 4 and 6. Thinking about a future year off of work, to cruise the circle or wherever and give the kids some world education. Anybody who has done this and would like to share advice, it would be greatly appreciated. Did you try schools abroad? Do it all aboard? Best ages to make it work? Any coordinated social/sports activities with other cruisers? Would it work with other friends/kids? Duration limits for sanity/overload? (!) Thanks in advance for any advice!

Although we never did take the kids, I recently read a couple of books by Liza Copeland describing a family''s six year cruise with three sons in elementary school. Worth reading for the travelogue!!
