No School For Jackson's Kids

MICHAEL JACKSON's mother has decided not to send the star's three children to school - they will reportedly continue learning from home with private tutors.
Katherine Jackson was granted custody of Prince Michael, 12, Paris, 11, and Prince Michael II 'Blanket', seven, after the King of Pop's tragic death in June (09).
The three kids have never attended regular school and speculation was rife that Katherine was set to enrol the youngsters in an exclusive educational institute in California to give them a taste of the real world.
But sources tell celebrity website TMZ.com that the trio will not be attending the Buckley School this autumn, but will continue their home-schooling with the same teachers hired by the late singer.
The website reports the family is keen to provide a "normal" school environment for the kids, even allegedly building a school yard and volleyball court to accommodate outdoor activities.

Good for them. Michael's Mother rocks on making wise decisions for her loved ones. Those children don't need to have to deal with another big change in their lives right now. Plenty of time for that later.

Good for her. I think now is not the time to introduce them to something they are not used to yet. There will be plenty of time for that later. Notice, she did not say she will never let them attend schools but just not right now. There has been so much upheaval in these childrens lives and they need a little bit of stability right now. They have to contend with so many changes right now. This way they can continue on the way they did before and with people who know and care about them.

First of all, Doglady, if your writing skills displayed here are any indication at all of what your teaching your children...please give up teaching of the children immediately. You prove yourself to be a moron and your children will grow up to be morons since they were "taught" by you. Secondly, My opinons on Michael Jackson is that the guy was a FREAK. He came from a freaky family. His children, having no experience with the real world will grow up to believe that their ADOPTIVE father was normal. Reality check! He wasn't normal. He really wasn't a King either. Hate to break that to all you black folk out there. But the dude was flat out WEIRD. For you to condone that in the name of music makes you as bad as the people that condoned his drug use and weirdness to begin with.Give those kids a chance, for God's sake! Let them out to see how NORMAL people live and act!

I am so proud of Katherine for standing up and taking on the responsibility of Michael;s kids to begin with i mean whom better she raised what 8 kids of her own. But the home schooling i think is Deffintly the wright thing to do considering they have never been to a real school.Katherine keep up the good work those kids are gonna need a;lot of support as well as lots of love to get them threw this they are beautiful kids.Oh ya and i don,t care what a single person says those kids are Michael,s look at them really they look just like Michael.so people need to quit speculating and let those kids alone and let Michael R.I.P. now he put up with enough stuff while he was alive. well he needs a peace full death now that he is gone. And the Jackson,s don,t need the paparazzi up there rears while they are trying to raise these children and trying to get them threw the worst of it.R.I.P. Michael.And my heart goes out to the whole Jackson family.
