Is Jaden jaded? (Sorry, I had to.) In a new series of tweets, Will Smith’s son shared that he doesn’t think schooling is exactly necessary — and actually admits he thinks dropping out is a good thing.

At 15, Jaden Smith sure has a lot to say about schooling! The Karate Kid actor tweeted for two days in a row about education, and how people would be “much more intelligent” if they just dropped out!

Jaden Smith Encourages Dropping Out Of School

“School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth,” Jaden tweeted out to his 4.5 million followers on Sept. 12. While we thought that was a little off — it was just the beginning.

That same day he added, “Education Is Rebellion,” and “If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Planet Earth.”

Well, tell us how you really feel, Jaden!

Jaden Was Brought Up In Non-Traditional Ways

It seems that he has something against the schooling system in general. “If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society,” he added on Sept. 13.

While he and little sister Willow Smith currently are homeschooled, they actually used to attend the New Village Leadership Academy, founded by parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. The private school taught nontraditional methods of education like study-tech, which is used in scientology. However, after a lack of funding, it was shut down in June 2013.

Now, he and 12-year-old Willow are homeschooled.

Will and Jada alike have commented that they don’t raise their children the way many others do.

“We respect our children the way we would respect any other person,” Will told Haute Living magazine in May. “Things like cleaning up their room. You would never tell a full-grown adult to clean their room, so we don’t tell our kids to clean their rooms.”

What do you think, HollywoodLifers — is Jaden’s twitter rant understandable or setting a bad example for kids who are a fan of his?

That´s so dumb. Without school he wouldn´t have clothes on his body, music to listen to, no house to live in and so on.
How could all these things be without people studying and being taught how to make all these things that we enjoy in society. Only someone who hasn´t understood the purpose of education and someone who´s life isn´t depending on an education can drop out and be stupid for the rest of their life. People who don´t grow up with a silver spoon in their mouth have to educate themselfs so they can get out in society and PROVIDE for themselfs and their family. Theses kids don´t know anything about reality they live so sheltered and in this bubble of safety and unrealistic values. When this idiot lived in the real world without millions in his bank account THEN he can come speak of life, before that he should just shut up. He wouldn´t even be able to play around with his dumb bike if it weren´t for the fact that someone went and educated themselfs and put that think together for him to buy. Beause even if he thought really hard, he would never ever be able to figure out how to make a bike from scratch! Someone needs to learn this kid to shut up and be humble instead.

It looks as if he should stay in school because he still hasn’t learned that every word in a sentence shouldn’t be capitalized!

I agree with him i dropped out a few months ago. If more people dropped out and had more street smarts this society would be much better. There would be less suicides and less homeless people. There needs to be schooling to a younger age thn take a test to see who would move on or not thn send the one who dont move on in school go to a diffrent school where they learn by the way some ppl learn on the street maybe not a school but a mentor?
