A source tells In Touch that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are still far from finding common ground when it comes to their custody battle and negotiations are again at a standstill.
"Brad is insisting that they enroll the kids in a traditional school in LA but Angie’s team rejected the idea,” the source exclusively reveals.

“[Brad’s] team also proposed that one parent always stay behind in LA when the other has to go away on a film shoot or out of town for work, which would allow the kids to remain in school,” the source adds.

“The kids’ therapists agree that it’s in their interests to live in one place instead of moving all over the world. And they also agree with Brad that the kids should go to regular school because they are missing out on important development in their lives. They don’t have friends, and their entire world is the family, which just isn’t healthy.”
But Angie prefers their nomadic lifestyle. “Angie says she wants to continue to raise the kids with a global awareness,” the source explains.

The couple met on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2003 while Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston. Although they tried to keep their attraction under wraps, their love blossomed.
"I think a few months in I realized, 'God, I can't wait to get to work,' " she told Vogue in 2006. "Anything we had to do with each other, we just found a lot of joy in it together and a lot of real teamwork. We just became kind of a pair."
