 That's what Will and Jada Smith's son Jaden said on Twitter recently. Do you agree that a formal education is "brainwashing" our youth and that we'd actually be better off without it?

That kid is way off. He's a 15 year old kid. Given who is parent's are and the fact they help him get jobs it's easy for him to say this. He may not need an education but what about kids who don't have the same privileges he does?  I laughed when he said" just get up and do what you want to" you need an education to do what you want.

 Yeah, I think he's showing his own ignorance that comes from the privileged upbringing he has. The average kid doesn't have wealth and fame to carry them through and must rely on education. Now, I don't think that education must necessarily come from the public or private school system, but there needs to be some kind of education to provide a foundation for the future.

Quoting singlemom416:
