I know more math than most high school teachers, and I'm good at conveying ideas. I should be allowed to run a homeschool for kids in my neighborhood or tutor math to kids in homeschools run by other parents. I'll teach them astrophysics, just for fun. Model the structure of the sun, maybe. Or figure out a transfer orbit to Mars. While the kids in public school are scratching their heads over long division, their same-age friends under my tutelage will be exploring hyperbolic trigonometric functions and applications of differential calculus to numerical analysis. I'll have the kids solving differential equations while thinking it's some kind of number game.
