Hollywood couple WILL and Jada Pinkett Smith have decided to homeschool their children, because they're unimpressed with America's educational system.

The ALI co-stars have six-year-old son JADEN, daughter Willow, four, TREY, 12, Will's son from his first marriage and Will's nephew KYLE, 15, in their care. And all children but Trey are currently homeschooled.

Jada tells ESSENCE magazine, "(They are homeschooled) for flexibility, so they can stay with us when we travel, and also because the school system in this country - public and private is designed for the industrial age.

"We're in a technological age. We don't want our kids to memorise. We want them to learn."
