Will Smith’s son Jaden went on a rant — via Twitter, of course — criticizing American’s school system.

The rant should not come as a complete surprise: Jaden and his sister, Willow, were home-schooled. And Will and his wife, Jada, aren’t raising their kids in typical fashion.

“I think that, specifically in African American households, the idea coming out of slavery, there’s a concept of your children being property and that was a major part that Jada and I realized with our kids,” Will recently told Haute Living magazine.

“We respect our children the way we would respect any other person. Things like cleaning up their room. You would never tell a full-grown adult to clean their room, so we don’t tell our kids to clean their rooms.”
