15 year old Jaden Smith thinks school is dumb

Will and Jada Smith's actor son Jaden Smith shared his thoughts on school on his Twitter page a few days ago....and yes he actually wrote that! Kinda sad that a 15 year old feels this way about school. See more tweets after the cut...

Mich said...

Rich suburban kids who have never known lack in their lives often pass through this phase.
Jaden is not an exception.
Problem however is,the large number of not-so-smart teens that are gonna get negatively influenced by his shallow comments cos they idolize him.
First was his little sister talking about how she isn't sure of her sexuality now him,these kids could use a little spanking,you know.

He can say ALL THESE THINGS about school, cuz he knows he will NEVER SUFFER to go JOB HUNTING like some of us.

How will some people like us don't go to school and expect to get a descent job that will help us survive daily??

Other than that, to be educated is also a pride.

If he (Jaden) didn't go to school earlier on, will he have been able to read or write?

The white people knows this,that's why them know they go school and they do better than us cus they are wiser and corny. And they just gave us this things to occupy our time and brain wash our children into believing some shit can't be possible all the men that built great things never went to school.....read the rest online

He is not attacking education and knowledge per se but school as a political and social institution that turns our youth into people unable to think for themselves, challenge authority and question the world.And I completely agree with him.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.

I think that the way people are taught in school does not promote the love for knowledge at all but simply mold them to survive in a brutal and narrowly defined reality without even questioning who and what shapes such reality and trying to fix it
.

.

Have you never wondered why so many of the most intelligent men in history are drop-outs or were bad in school?? Bill Gates, the guy behind Facebook etc ....Did you knwo that Leonardo Da Vinci was refused entry to university?? Even Einstein held as one of the most intelligent people ever wasnt good at school at all because his way of thinking and seeing the world was so forward and challenging so many things. And he said that school is not designed to explore the multiple set of human abilities and nurture forward thinking and his life is a testimony of that.
.
.
.
.
.
.
.
Basically school goes like this: They give you what is held as knowledge and you have to mindlessly swallow it to vomit it later on a test to have cool points. They never teach you how to digest things on your own way or offer tools for that. This is not about intelligence but simply memory.

The best schooling system in the world is Finland's and their system is set as far as possible from traditional schooling. No grade. No competition between pupils. No homework. Highly personalized teaching to nurture a thirst for knowledge in children. Yet their children have the best test scores in the developed world. By investing this way in their education, Finland, which is a tiny country, has now become a technological hub with brands such as Nokia
.

.

Look at our schools In Africa. Our children are abused physically, emotionally, tortured, called named and traumatized for what exactly? Look at our politicians, they are supposed to be the brightest, the ones who had good marks, had all these degrees in prestigious school, the best education yet anyone can clearly see that they are dumb as hell and backward and have been dragging us into more misery. FFK is out here caught up in online beefs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has graduated from Harvard, yet she is dumber than a bag of rocks and her reforms have been worsening the situation of the most financially vulnerable Nigerians.

,it is not unusual for kids his age to hate school. Most kids go to school because its attached to a better future. This kid has got his future all planned out for him, at least financially. The fact that he still goes to school is a bonus to him. It would be better for him to get an education, to be at least able to manage his wealth. Still ,at his young age ,this little guy is attending the university of life, tht counts as experience. and he can speak better English than most nigerian graduates.

The boy is right, we were supposed to go to school to be educated (education which has its Greek origin as 'eduko' meaning to draw out), but the opposite is true day. School create close minds and fear. In Nigeria for example, they teach you how to think with the mind of the 16th Century, while the post 21st Century thinkers are light years away. Just read pple comments, you will see how close their minds are.

Actually he is speaking the truth. His comment does not attack knowledge, he is simply saying that school is dumb which is true. I fondly refer to school as the indoctrination of the young, school is designed to feed us with knowledge and shape our way of thinking into a narrowly defined view of the world. It does not allow us to think or utilise our brain or question the world that we live in.

I kinda agree with him. #thats because I want to be honest#

I know that we need basic education, as a matter of compulsion but the mentality that education is the ultimate just sickens me.

I know many people will chop off my head for this but I am merely being honest. Look around you, the very rich and prosperous are people who use their God given talents not necessarily those who invest their lives in the pages of books, irrespective of what field. And in a way this is one among the very many reasons why Africa is backward.

We need to explore other options outside academics. How well educated were the likes of Bill Gates and many others. As for me, I'd let my kids do whatever it is they want to do with their lives, so long as it's not a criminal act, and as long as i see good prospects in thier aspirations. However they must have basic education #my definition of basic education is at least graduation from high school or a college of education # not necessarily a university.

It's not sad tho.Linda, he is saying the plain truth...school is dumb AF..it doesn't in anyway prepare you for life..I more than support his statement that sort of says if everyone drops outta school, intelligence will take over.

Lalarealtalk along with those others he praised are blessed. You all know ur stuff...Jayden is much more smarter than the rest in the same league with Linda...Linda with all these ur blogging, i think u should spend some time doing worthwhile research such as the history of education, curriculum adopted to educate us and individuals that championed it...i'm sure at the end of ur research, you will see the light and thank Jayden for schooling u. Perhaps u may even start blogging about positive stuff.

I agree with Jaden to a certain extent because formal education is actually not suitable for everyone; it stifles the creativity and originality of really smart children. It is especially bad for us because everything we learn in formal education is euro-centric and so we keep moving further and further away from what we could be as a people. The ancient kingdom of Benin had well laid out roads, storey buildings and technology suited to its own needs before the coming of the white man. Similar stories abound all over black Africa. But we lost all of it and took on the white man's ways. It took intellectual thinking and planning to create the things and build the kingdoms of ancient black Africa. Those who still have the capacity need to start doing something so we can re-discover and integrate our ancient knowledge into our modern education system so that we can move forward. Years ago, there was a young man in Benin that created a television that worked based power generated by some plant based energy system that he developed; he was shut down. What he did was original and probably derived from the sort of thinking that was at work in the ancient kingdom of Benin. Those of us with the capacity and bent need to break from the chains of western education. Jaden is certainly right to an extent.
