The movie star son of Hollywood couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith is now starring in his own online controversy after sounding off against America's education system on Twitter.

Jaden Smith, 15, is getting a lot attention for telling his four million Twitter followers that "school is the tool to brainwash the youth."

Jaden and his younger sister Willow are both home-schooled.

One of his tweets reads, "If everybody in the world dropped out of school we would have a much more intelligent society."

Critics say this is not the example Jaden should be setting for fans.
