Hollywood star Will Smith's son Jaden Smith has slammed the school education system in a series of posts on Twitter.

The 15-year-old actor, who made his Hollywood debut with "The Pursuit of Happyness", said in one of his posts that if everyone opts out of their schools, the society would witness more intelligence, reported Radar online.

"School is the tool to brainwash the youth," Jaden wrote in his first post. "If newborn babies could speak they'd be the most intelligent beings on the planet," he added. In his final post, he tweeted, "If everybody in the world dropped out of school we would have a much more intelligent society."

Jaden is said to have attended the New Village Leadership Academy, which his parents founded in 2008. However, the actor and his sister Willow are reportedly home schooled now since the school got shut down earlier this year.
