The Jackson Kids' Education -- Home Works

9/9/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael Jackson's kids won't be attending a swanky school in Los Angeles after all -- the family has decided to keep them enrolled at the one learning facility they are very familiar with ... home.

Michael Jackson's Kids

A source extremely close to the situation tells us the decision was made not to enroll Michael Jr., Paris, and Prince at the Buckley School -- where Tito's three kids attended -- so they could continue being homeschooled by the same tutors they had under Michael's supervision.

The only difference -- their home is now the Jackson's place in Encino, not Michael's place in Holmby Hills.

We're told the Jackson family is pulling out all the stops to recreate a "normal" school environment -- they're even building a school yard, complete with a volleyball court, so the kids can enjoy P.E. time. The kids will also go on field trips and have a designated "lunch hour" in between classes.

It's so funny how many people react negatively at the fact that there is an alternative in education such as home schooling and that it's much better than regular school, specially since most of those who are so shocked never heard of it before MJ's story. Why do you take for granted all the information you read on tabloids? (including this one), before passing judgement or giving your precious opinions to the public inform yourselves cause you're all living prove that regular schools are no good!!!

HATERS ARE DESPERATE!    

178. Mimi,I agree with you. We haven't seen any proof that he is infact dead.I have been doing alot of research also, and I have come to the realization that he is alive. It's really disturbing when people personally attack others on here because of their theories or thoughts. We too have the right to come here and voice our opinion.

I think the children should be able to live a normal life and not be so isolated. Part of Michaels problem with society was that he never EVER let us see him. When he would show up somewhere it was this HUGE deal because he was so reclusive. He marketed himself well that's for sure. If the kids just start going about normal everyday life now then in a little while nobody will care and nobody will bother them. Keep them all hidden away and everytime they go out it will be a nightmare.

I never thought his chidren would be going to any private school anyway.Michael had them being home schooled for many reasons.One reason because of who they are.It would just be too much -with the media and all that is going on.It has always been like that for them-now it is even worst because their Father is not here.They do not have a normal life not because of MJ-but just because of who they are.How could they learn anything in that environment constantly being bothered. It will be best from them to be home schooled. I know it is good for them to be with the family,but things are so different for them.They were use to traveling and living in a different way then now. It must be hard for them to constantly have so many people around.I think it would be nice for to get away just like they went to Vegas- but somewhere else for a while-it can not be easy for them.Even with school being important,and trying to get them back to a normal life,normal of what they were use to is gone....I think they need time away still now.

i'm getting the impression aome people think these kids are being home schooled like they are the beverly hillbillies..couldn't be farther than the truth.i live in New England and my daughter is in a colege prep. school in conn.Many people home school and it is an excellent alternative to public school.especially since these kids have tutors.Alot of times the mothers do it but yuo need to be very structured.i i know of families in Rhode Island, Conn. and Ma who are all home schoole. They will get into the same colleges as the private schools .Michael Jackson was no dummy.He didnt get as far inthe music businesswithout doing his research.I am sure these kids are getting a top notch education

To the haters who say crap about Michael´s kids:

I´ve said it before when s"%# is being said about Michael, but I am happy to repeat:

You DO realize that what you say makes YOU look bad, don´t you? And you DO realize that when you say crappy things about the kids, YOU LOOK VERY, VERY bad.

You have no right whatsoever to call Michael a child molestor when you ppl are exactly that.

Lowest of the low. I know you´re miserable under-achievers. God help you.

I commend that Jackson family to keep Michael's kids homeschooled. This is the best for them to keep them safe from the media frenzy. Michael has been hounded and harassed by the media almost his whole life; he never wanted to let his kids endure the same. Michael has done a great job as a father - he has raised his kids as role models of society. They have been educated far way better than traditionally schooled kids. They had the best tutors, they met all kinds of people (influential and ordinary people), they visited the whole world over, they visited museums, libraries, historical places, etc. The kids inherited their father's intelligence and warm personality.

For all those who insist on questioning these kids' paternity. Look at their faces - they're questionably mixed bloods - you can see the Jackson's features in their faces. You can see Michael in their faces. Just think about it, would Michael treat them so special and differently from the millions of kids he had met if they're not his own blood? He had always wanted kids of his own - his own flesh and blood - and when he had them he could not hide his excitement and happiness. Look at the way he took pains to protect these kids (masking them so they will be protected from media harassment and possible kidnapping). Just watch their home movies, you can really see he's really proud of his kids - because they're his own blood - he knew he has immortalized his person through his kids. His three kids have his genetics. That is why he took pains to educate them and bring them up the way he wanted kids to be brought up. In his will, he clearly stated, these three kids are his only kids. Don't buy those crap about donor sperm cells. Michael knew the best sperm cells he could have were his own sperm cells.

Yes, Elizabethvitale and Mimi, if you guys have proof that he's alive please feel everyone else in. I would love to think that he's alive, but something in my heart tells me he isn't.
