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.

Michael Jackson's children have been tutored by professors from USC. They've traveled all around the world, and reportedly speak several languages. Everyone who has ever encountered them has described them as intellectually advanced, with beautiful manners. Regular school would be a step backward for them.

MIchael Jackson giving from the heart

As the world continues to mourn Michael Jackson's death and review the life he filled with not only music and performing, but also charitable works, attention is being drawn to the liver transplant he paid for in 1994 for Hungarian child Bela Farkas. Jackson and his then new bride, Lisa Marie Presley, met the four year-old boy during a visit to the Bethesda Children's Hospital when Jackson was in Budapest, Hungary shooting a music video. Doctors at the hospital told Jackson that Bela's mother had abandoned him and that his father rarely visited him. Jackson and Presley were so taken with the boy, who had been in the hospital since his birth, that they returned the following day for several hours to visit with him.

Bela was diagnosed with a congenital liver disease that discolored his skin and prevented him from digesting food. Without a transplant, doctors gave him one year to live. Bela's transplant was to take place at a Western hospital, as those in Hungary did not have the necessary equipment for the transplant. The estimated cost for the transplant was $120, 000. Jackson pledged funds from Heal the World, the charitable foundation he created in 1992 inspired by his charitable single of the same name, to cover all expenses related to Bela's transplant.

Katherine what happened to your decision to send the kids to private school with the Beckham boys? Too much freedom? Need to keep them isolated to the advantage of the Jackson family. Make them solely and sorely co-dependent on you, their uncles and cousins for their nurturing and bonding.

Katherine knows that when her days on earth come to a close (may she RIP) that her 40% reverts to the children. Strong bonds must be in place between MJs children and Kates immediate family, OR they will be left in the financial lurch. Prince, Paris, and Prince II will be at the helm of the MJFT with the help of their attorneys. Kate must see to it that strong bonds are in place with a family that was virtually unknown to them prior to MJs death. There were no meaningful "bonds" with MJs family, MJ saw to that.

These children have fallen into the lairs of a family of wolves in sheeps clothing.
Their guardian ad litem will be able to protect them financially, but who is to protect them from the emotional brainwashing and gentle manipulation that has already been in effect for 2 1/2 months. Hopefully counselors and tutors will keep a keen eye out but then even they are on the Jackson payroll. (at MJs bequest)

These children are too young, and were caught up during a traumatic and vulnerable time in their lives to be able to realize what has actually befallen them.

Hopefully all will turn out OK.

I am so sick of all this. Leave the children in peace and stop exploiting Michael and for gods sakes stay focused on those who murdered him. Please realize he was taken from his family and his fans.
Those responsible need to pay.

First of all tell the man that yelled to Harvey Levin: everyone was watching him on the web.

The kids would be bothered in school by people. They need to be away and be nurtured by family. There are plenty of cousins to play with and interact with.

How can we claim to be supporting Michael's wishes, How can we claim to be honoring his memory, How can we claim to love him when we keep messing with his children. Have we forgot that he did not want his children in the public eye. Remember he said I want them to have time to just be children. Please leave them alone my god this is really sick. Please please leave these children in peace.

I do not accept this crap well they will gain attention just by being Michael's children. Thats like say Michael's stardom give us card blanche to harass them. Ok that is sick please leave these children in peace. I am also not buying this junk that these children were just born into a public situation those are excuses we are the adults and they are children period. leave them alone.

Don't you just know it.
Special attention is being paid to bonding with those needy uncles Jermaine and Randy. With Randy in Las Vegas a few weeks ago.

That shot of Randy holding Michael close at the filming of the funeral just made my blood run cold.

There he is Randy, who by several reports was with MJ when he was stricken, protectively holding MJs son. With his sunglasses on still. Take those glasses off for us Randy, those eyes will tell us a thousand words. You know that don't you? Not just doing it be glamorous are you.

You're not going to be able to continue fooling everyone, much less anyone.

How in the hell can we continue to use these children's grief as some sort of sick entertainment. Damn we have lied on Michael and accused him of so many things. But as his children bury their father we start messing with them. Right now I am really ashamed of what we are doing here this is just public abuse of three small kids who have lost the only parent they have ever known. I am ashamed of all of us.

Hey, they will probably do better at home than at a regular school. Come to think of it, I enjoyed staying home myself and have done so for over a decade.

Yep- it's even more possible now that we have the Internet that puts us 3 feet in front of the world- if you can get good training that is.
