Will and Jada please come get your son!

Jaden Smith recently took to his Twitter account to dismiss the educational system and tell his four million followers they would be better off if they dropped out of school!

“If everybody in the world dropped out of school we would have a much more intelligent society,” he wrote. “All the rules in this world were made by someone no smarter than you. So make your own.”

He went on to say “school is the tool to brainwash the youth.”

“If newborn babies could speak they would be the most intelligent beings on planet Earth,” he added. “Education is rebellion.”

We don’t know what sparked the 15-year-old’s rant, we do know his parents, Will and Jada Smith, practice a hands-off approach when it comes to parenting and education.

“The way that we deal with our kids is, they are responsible for their lives,” the actor said during a recent interview with E! Online.”Our concept is, as young as possible, give them as much control over their lives as possible and the concept of punishment, our experience has been—it has a little too much of a negative quality,”

“So when they do things—and you know, Jaden, he’s done things—you can do anything you want as long as you can explain to me why that was the right thing to do for your life,” Will said.

We hope Jaden finds the light and it leads him back in a direction toward school!

  1. WOW!!! I would LOVE to hear Will and Jada justify this? Its good to let kids express themselves and have their own opinions, but some things are just DUMB, not smart and parents should not encourage or support. His parents obviously don’t stress education and didn’t instill it in him at an early age the way it was with MOST black kids. If I said that when I was 15, I would have been picking up my head off of the floor!!! Most black parents don’t play talking down to education. I wouldn’t have even THOUGHT of saying this even if I did THINK it!! This is a small reason why hands off parenting is a BAD idea!!!
