Jaden Smith took to Twitter yesterday to spread a very important message for the youth of today: He thinks they should all ditch school.

 

It's hard to tell if his long, liberally capitalized rant is some sort of Scientology thing (his parents founded a private school that was reportedly based on Scientology education principles) or just a 10th grader trying to get out of a math test.

 

"All The Rules In This World Were Made By Someone No Smarter Than You. So Make Your Own," he began.

 

He continued, "School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth," and "Education Is Rebellion." Wait, so is school brainwashing or rebellion? Or is he saying that true education happens when you rebel against school? OK, I think I follow.

"If Newborn Babies Could Speak They Would Be The Most Intelligent Beings On Planet Earth." Nope, I don't.

"If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society." Yeah, why aren't there more charities helping third world children drop out of school? Angelina Jolie should get on that.

"Everybody Get Off Your Phones And Go Do What You Actually Wanna Do." But what if what I actually wanna do is play Candy Crush?

I know, I'm being mean. He's a kid. All kids have dumb opinions. I just really enjoy the thought of a nervous publicist calling Will Smith, explaining that the kid they're trying to set up as a wholesome role model is encouraging his fans to drop out of school.
