Jackson's Kids Attend School

MICHAEL JACKSON's two eldest children have attended school for the first time.
The superstar's three kids - Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Blanket - were tutored at home under the instruction of the singer, who was determined to keep his children out of the public eye.
After Jackson's death last year (09), the youngsters were placed in the custody of their grandmother Katherine, who announced plans to send them to public school and allow them to mix with their peers.
And Katherine has followed through with her promise - Prince and Paris have enrolled at an exclusive school in California, where previous students include Matthew Perry, Nicole Richie and Laura Dern.
The pair enjoyed their first day at The Buckley School in the San Fernando Valley on Wednesday (25Aug10), according to TMZ.com.
Blanket will reportedly remain at home with a private tutor until he is considered ready to face public school.

I don't think it's a good idea, but I thought Katherine would have at least enrolled them in a private school. I hope the other children don't tell of all the nasty things that's been said about Michael. It might be traumatizing to them. I feel when someone entrust you with the care of their children, you should continue to follow whatever plan they already have in place. I just hope everything works out & the kids are protected at all times.

I hope they will not get bullied and will not be associated with bad influence kids. They seemed to be nice, well mannered, polite, behaved kids. This is their first time to venture without their protective loving father. Make your daddy proud, Prince & Paris! :))

This is wonderful news! I feel Michael was right to seclude them in their younger years and I think it is great that Katherine is letting them chose to face the public when they feel ready. Best of luck to them and I hope this school has zero tolerance for bullying. Kids can be mean and rich kids always seem to be meaner!

THEY DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ANYTHING THEIR FATHER WILL BE WATCHING OVER THEM. I JUST HOPE ITS THE RIGHT DECISION BECAUSE KIDS CAN BE CRUEL AND I HOPE THE TABLOIDS STAY AWAY.

I can see it now. One bully tries to say something nasty & they will suddenly find themselves severely hurt. Blanket will then say "you've been hit by, you've been struck by" then Paris will say "are you okay?? are you okay???" No. I'm kidding. I just hope those kids can remain in a SMALL private school until they reach high school age (go to a private high school) and then go to college or university abroad. American people are the worst when it comes to respecting celebrities' privacy & personal space.

YOU SHOULDNT HAVE SAID THE NAME OF THE SCHOOL AND LOCATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! why the hell do u do that??? if YOU KNOW its not good for the kids!!! now all the media an paparazzi will be at the door of the school everyday to see if they can take a pic of them coming out from school!!!!!!!!!! WHY THE HELL DI YOU HAVE TO SAY THE NAME OF THE SCHOOL????? now they will NEVER go to school in peace!! anyway , if i think about it twice, i think it could be better if they dont go to a school, i dont think it will work. they will never be treated as NORMAL, they will never be approached for who they are THEMSELVES, they will always be approached by curious kids and parents of those kids that will tell THEIR kids to approach michaels kids SO THAT THEY TOO CAN GO SPY AND CHECK OUT THEY HOUSE WHERE PRINCE AND PARIS LIVES, ETC. SO THEY CAN BRAG WITH THEIR FRIENDS. i am SURE of that. the PARENTS of those kids in school WILL BE THE ONES to tell THEIR kids to approach prince and paris so thay can have contact THEMSELVES w katherine, j's, etc. MICHAELS KIDS WILL NEVER HAVE TRUE FRIENDS IN SCHOOL. they have to be home schooled and find friends some place else, like church, park, neighborhood and friends of all their cousins, etc. there WAS a REASON why michael didnt send them to school, michael wasnt stupid. and i really appreciate katherines good intentions, and i would TRY to send them too, but i dont think it will work in the end. too much pressure.

I think it is great that the kids are attending school. I believe Michael had a master plan when he named his mother the quardian for his kids. I wish them the best.
