Jaden Smith took to Twitter last week to claim that education is what is bringing society down, calling school “the tool to brainwash the youth.”
Smith, 15, began his odd Twitter rant on September 5, writing, “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.”
He later added on Sept. 12, “School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth,” “Education Is Rebellion” and the following day he added, “If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society.”
Us Weekly notes that Smith’s anti-education rant is odd as his parents Will and Jada Smith have founded their own school the New Village Leadership Academy, in Calabasas, Calif.
Neither of his parents have responded to their teenage singer/actor son's Twitter rant. Smith has not said exactly what set him off to post such outrageous things, especially when he clearly does not understand the basic rules of grammar.
Education Is Rebellion.
