Summertime. And things parents don’t understand.  But not so much history.

Will Smith says he and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith are home schooling their kids because he doesn't trust a school to give them the education they really need.  Smith 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.”

I don't know how to break this to Will Smith, but just because you read something that was written down doesn't make you an expert.  It doesn't prepare you for real life.  Trust me.  For example, if you show up in a robe and glasses and point your wand at those bullies who took my hat and then say "Avada Kedavra", the only result is a massive beating.  And even if you read "Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood" three times, your heart won't ache any less after you join a dig for an ancient city on the coast of Turkey and discover that your archaeology professor is available in every way except one.
