Will Smith Can Teach his Kids Anything

Willsmith9

Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith believe in home schooling their kids.  They feel that the school system limits their education, and claims there are no limits to what he can teach Jaden, eight; Willow, six; and his 14-year-old son Trey, from his marriage to Sheree Smith.

He says, “The date of the Boston Tea Party does not matter. I know how to learn anything I want to learn. I absolutely know that I could learn how to fly the space shuttle because someone else knows how to fly it, and they put it in a book. Give me the book, and I do not need somebody to stand up in front of the class.”

Here is an excerpt from his interview with Readers Digest:

RD: Have you ever thought about going back to college?
Smith: The things that have been most valuable to me I did not learn in school. Traditional education is based on facts and figures and passing tests — not on a comprehension of the material and its application to your life. Jada and I homeschool our children, because the date of the Boston Tea Party does not matter.

RD: But there are some basics in education that need to be taught.
Smith: Of course there are. Reading, writing and arithmetic, because those are the languages of our country.

RD: When you say you homeschool, do you mean you actually teach them?
Smith: No, we  have hired teachers who teach what we feel is important. For example, Plato’s Republic — kids need to know that. Why is that not taught in first grade?

RD: You think kids in elementary school should read Plato’s Republic?
Smith: Yeah. You cannot be an American without reading it and Aristotle’s Politics. That is what the forefathers of this country read, and they used them to create what I believe is the finest system of government that has ever existed.

RD: So, you don’t see any reason to go back to a formal education yourself?
Smith: I know how to learn anything I want to learn. I absolutely know that I could learn how to fly the space shuttle because someone else knows how to fly it, and they put it in a book. Give me the book, and I do not need somebody to stand up in front of the class.

RD: They put physics in a book, but I know I could never be a physicist.
Smith: The first step is you have to say that you can.

Latest Dish: No Kids For Cameron

Cameron

Cameron Diaz, 34 and Justin Timerlake have been together for 3-years, but don’t expect any babies right now.

Diaz told reporters Sunday while promoting her new movie The Holiday in Los Angeles:

"I think everybody wants at some point to have that responsibility and involvement. But not at the moment,"

Asked if she was worried about the commitment, she said, "Yeah, exactly, the commitment! I don’t even want a dog. I don’t. My cat just died, and I don’t want a cat."

Brad & Angelina Leave India

The Jolie-Pitt clan finally leave India after filming Mighty Heart for a month.  Angelina is holding Shiloh almost 6-months.  Brad has double duty holding Maddox 5, and baby Zahara.  From the looks of the pictures it is probably early morning or middle of the night.  The kids look like they just woke up.

I guess they will be spending Thanksgiving in the USA.

Jude left Sienna to focus on his Kids

Jude1_2

Jude Law ended his relationship with Sienna Miller to foucus on his family.  He couldn’t keep up with her partying lifestyle, and was more into being a dad according to reports.

"It’s a mutual decision," a pal of the actor says. "They have definitely come to the end of the road. They tried to make it work but it failed."

PageSix meanwhile reports it was Jude Law who called off his rocky relationship with Sienna Miller.

"She was just too wild for him," said an insider. "She partied too much. He is a devoted father of four children and she always wanted to go out constantly. He was just done with her."

Miller, 24, dumped Law, 33, the first time around, breaking off their engagement in the summer of 2005 when he confessed to having an affair with his children’s nanny, Daisy Wright.

The on-off couple reunited again last May
