The minimal education reality star Kylie Jenner receives suggests she might share rumored boyfriend Jaden Smith's anti-school views.
Jenner explained last week that her life is unlike the average teenager--she logs in about "three or four hours" of school per day. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made the big reveal when she called in to Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Nov. 12.
"How many hours of school do you go to a day?" Seacrest asked.
"I do like three to four," Jenner answered, adding, "[Then] I usually work. I'm pretty busy all day."
After she spoke about her current business commitments, the American Idol host said he was impressed that the 16-year-old works so much.
Radar Online reported in September that Jenner's parents, Bruce Jenner and Kris Jenner, were once at odds over the decision to let Kylie be home schooled part-time or attend school full-time. Their father did not agree with his daughters' demanding work schedule and often feuded with their mother over their conflicting schedules.
"The girls were constantly missing school because of business commitments including promotional appearances, and photo shoots," the insider told the website. "Bruce was absolutely adamant that the girls not drop out of school in order to be home schooled. This all played out on the reality show, but what viewers didn't see was the fights between Bruce and Kris. Bruce always wanted the girls to go to college, whereas Kris doesn't place an emphasis on education."
The source added: "Kris has told the girls they are only young once and they could always go back to school later. She doesn't want them to miss out on lucrative deals because they are in school."
In the end, Bruce decided to agree with Kris and allow the girls to be homeschooled so their schedule would be more flexible for business opportunities.
A week before Radar Online's report, Kylie's rumored boyfriend Jaden Smith went on a Twitter rant that bashed the education system.
The After Earth actor, who rarely uses the social media site, tweeted on Sept. 12, "School Is The Tool To Brainwash The Youth." The 15-year-old followed that tweet with, "Education is Rebellion" and then on Sept. 13 he wrote, "If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society."
If Everybody In The World Dropped Out Of School We Would Have A Much More Intelligent Society.
Education Is Rebellion.

Radar Online also reported that Smith and his sister, Willow Smith, are also currently homeschooled. They previously attended New Village Leadership Academy, a private school founded by their A-list actor parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. The school was founded in 2008 and it was closed earlier this year, according to the report.
