Jaden Smith Doesn’t Like SchoolBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - September 16, 2013
The Smith family seems to be a pretty close and well behaved one for the most part. Jaden however, has decided to rebel a little and voice his not so popular opinion about education on Twitter.
He Tweeted: “People Use To Ask Me What Do You Wanna Be When You Get Older And I Would Say What A Stupid Question The Real Question Is What Am I Right Now. “All The Rules In This World Were Made By Someone No Smarter Than You. So Make Your Own.”
This isn’t the first time he has criticized schooling and education.
He also recently tweeted:
“School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth.” “Education Is Rebellion. If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Planet Earth.”
He finished with:
If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society . . . Everybody Get Off Your Phones And Go Do What You Actually Wanna Do.”
Jaden is only 15 so it’s hard to tell if he honestly feels this way about education in general or was just having a bad day. Not too many 15 year old are fond of school, especially those with other priorities and interests.
While Jaden may not find education important, the same cannot be said for his successful parents. Will and Jada founded the New Village Leadership Academy and donate large sums of money to education causes every year.
It may be a while before Jaden appreciates his education, but hopefully his parents can get him back on track before he turns into a wild child and a school dropout.
