In the 1940s, Lockheed Aerospace created an Advanced Development Projects division, known as the Skunk Works, which earned a reputation for its ability to develop and produce innovative aircraft previously thought impossible within the aeronautics industry.  To retain accountability but unleash creativity, the Skunk Works operated according to founder Kelly Johnson's 14 Skunk Works rules.  Several sectors other than aviation have adapted the Skunk Works rules but educators have largely ignored them.  The authors describe their attempts to identify educational applications for Johnson’s rules, and present ten adapted rules.  They challenge K-12 and higher educators to restructure educational organizations and classrooms according to these adapted principles.
