a ‘nomadic family.
but with tutors.. and a curriculum..?
Jolie prefers to hire tutors and home school her and Brad Pitt’s growing brood, which includes Maddox, nine; Pax, seven; Zahara, six; Shiloh, five and two-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
‘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,’ the Kung Fu Panda 2 star said in an interview with The Independent today.
‘But we travel and I’m the first person to say, “Get the school work done as quickly as possible because let’s go out and explore”.’
‘Instead of tomfoolery in the class room, ‘I’d rather them go to a museum and learn to play guitar and read and pick a book they love,’ revealed Jolie.
mar 2016 – syrian refugee speech
We cannot manage the world through aid relief in the place of diplomacy and political solutions. We cannot discuss this as if it were a problem confined to the situation of tens of thousands of refugees in Europe. We cannot improve this reality by partial responses, by responding to some crises and not others, or by helping some refugees and not others – for instance, by excluding Afghan refugees, among other groups – or by making a distinction between refugees on grounds of religion. The result would be more chaos, more injustice and insecurity, and ultimately more conflict, and more refugees.
We have to focus on the absolute root causes, and that takes a certain amount of courage and leadership. And in my view, leadership in this situation is about doing more than simply protecting your borders or simply putting forward more aid, it means taking decisions to ensure we are not heading towards an even greater refugee crisis in the future.
We can do the right thing by refugees and build a more secure international environment. We can build order out of chaos.
oh. for a conversation with Angelina. what we could do. (betting on the sync)
