Angelina Jolie Slams Schools, Claiming Her Kids Are Better Off Staying At Home!

The actress insists her six children with Brad Pitt learn more globetrotting with their superstar parents then they do at school!

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been criticized for dragging their brood around the world with them. But Angie is convinced that’s a FAR better learning environment for them than any classroom. Are they right?

“The education system is so bad, Angelina, 35, tells The Independent. “I do think we live in a different age and the education system hasn’t caught up with our children and our way of life.”

The Brangelina brood; Maddox, 9, Pax, 7, Zahara, 6, Shiloh, 5 and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, are enrolled in the French Lycée programme and attend classes wherever they are in the world with their parents.

But Angelina prefers to home school her children with the help of private tutors, explaining, “Instead of tomfoolery in the class room, I’d rather them go to a museum and learn to play guitar and read and pick a book they love.”

These are pretty strong words, HollyMoms. Are schools THAT bad? And isn’t “tomfoolery” and bonding with classmates part of growing up?

Tell us what YOU think!
