While I agree whole heartedly with this idea, there is one point that could be problematic: "schools would become hyper-local." Given the class and race segregated nature of our schooling system, I'm afraid this could exacerbate the huge disadvantage faced by children whole live in poverty pockets. I am entirely for students using their skills to tackle real-world issues, but some issues require a lot more resources. In this scenario, we could end up with kids in wealthy communities working together to get the latest computers for their local library - while kids in poor communities are forced to face huge issues like systematic discrimination and oppression.
