Jaden Smith and his eyebrows have some thoughts on America’s education system.
Maybe he should go to school and learn that you don’t capitalize every single word in your sentences.
is he fucking kidding me
Haha. Without school we would not have been introduced to math, science, or English; we would not be able to read or spell unless someone spent the time to teach us; we would not have been inspired by our teachers to pursue certain fields and make breakthroughs that changed society.
Don’t tell me school isn’t important, or that we would be a more intelligent society without it.
Maybe yall should stop acting like the U.S. educational system is anything more than a system of exploitation and brainwashing and getting at Jaden for spitting some real shit. And really now? we’re gonna act like Jaden is talking shit about teachers and not the educational system as whole? Which is obviously and clearly heavily flawed as it creates more failed students than anything else.
Notice how he praises education in general in one tweet but directs his dislike towards the schools. Which makes sense because yes, education is valuable and powerful in theory but our current schools do more to suck the money and life out of students than they do any legitimate teaching/educating.
I don’t see what’s so wrong in what he tweeted that would merit the responses above. He may be a kid still, growing and learning (you know like that shit the ‘well-educated’ like to preach? we’re always learning? guess it doesn’t apply here and he’s just being a dumbass kid) but the points he brings up aren’t any different than the points made by famous white autodidacts like Ray Bradbury who saw how faulty our educational systems are and got praised for these views. But Jaden expresses a similar sentiment and all of the sudden yall go up in arms lol.
