Yesterday was #ThrowbackThursday, and this week MTV Act keeps talkin’ about education, thanks to Katy Perry and Mark Wahlberg. So when Justin Bieber Tweeted an old class photo yesterday, we knew the perf Sweet Tweet to end the week!

OK, so he doesn’t outright mention school or education in his Tweet, but we know from past words of wisdom from Justin Bieber that the boy knows being educated is important. While being a pop star and making bazillions of dollars, he still made the point to get his high school diploma. And we totally heart all the work he does for Pencils of Promise. Pencils of Promise is all about making sure kids across the globe get an education, and it was founded by Adam Braun, the bro of Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun. You could say it’s all in the family!
All this activism involving education shows Justin’s beliefs about school are polar opposite to those of his pal Jaden Smith, who recently hit the news-o-sphere after sending out some Tweets bashing school. Nobody said school is perfect, and it is possible to get educated outside of a classroom, but it appears Justin’s thoughts are more in line with those of Malala, who stressed the importance of education as a way of widening people’s horizons.
