Angelina Jolie - Angelina Jolie Calls For 'Better' School Systems
Angelina Jolie shuns traditional education systems for her children, because she is convinced current curriculums are out of touch with her family's "way of life".
The actress and her longterm partner Brad Pitt are parents to six kids, ranging in age from two to nine, and the couple takes the youngsters with them around the world as they shoot and promote movies.
The children are largely tutored privately as Jolie prefers them to learn from life experiences, and she is adamant conventional schooling needs to be changed.
She tells Britain's The Independent newspaper, "I wish there was a book every parent could read that tells you how to navigate through the school system, and how to tailor the education system for your children and their interests.
"I do think we live in a different age and the education system hasn't caught up with our children and our way of life. But we travel and I'm the first person to say, 'Get the schoolwork done as quickly as possible because let's go out and explore.'
"I'd rather them go to a museum and learn to play guitar and read and pick a book they love. I feel that there's got to be a new way to tailor things more directly to our children. Considering the amount of information we have today, the internet and online books... we as parents need to think about how we can shake it up and make it better."
