When it comes to her 8-year-old daughter Gaia Romilly‘s education, Emma Thompson says she’s happy to blaze a different trail. "It’s very British to send the children off to boarding school," the 49-year-old actress tells Parade, "but over my dead body." Instead, Emma says, "[Gaia] lives at home and goes to day school."

Emma also revealed that Tindyebwa Agaba — the 19-year-old Rwandan refugee she adopted with husband Greg Wise — is also in school, focusing his studies on political science.
