Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine is saying that his children will attend school for the first time later this year. Jackson’s three children — Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8 have had only private lessons up until now. Will being around other children in a fairly normal environment be good for them? Of course – while home schooling might work from an academic perspective it is an obvious failure from a social and psychological perspective. Being a Jackson child is already so unusual that the added weirdness of not attending school like other kids is bound to screw them up. In fact there is no doubt in my mind that Katherine will be a better parent and make better decisions regarding the kids than Michael.
