La Toya Jackson talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com at Millions of Milkshakes The children of the late pop legend Michael Jackson recently started attending the private Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California after a lifetime of homeschooling.

However, sister La Toya Jackson thinks her brother wouldnt approve. I think he probably wouldve preferred for them to be homeschooled a little bit longer, she told OnTheRedCarpet.com on Monday. Because, you know, he likes to keep his kids secluded, and he liked for them to really know what they know as far as the exposure to the world."

She added, "I think thats a bit too soon for them. He wanted them to grow up a bit before that happens."

Her statements come after a report on Monday by Good Morning America that claims Prince Michael Jackson, 13, and Paris Jackson, 12, are adjusting well to the change. It was reportedly their decision to begin going to school.  Family attorney Brian Oxman said, "If this is what they wanted, he would have approved."

The school boasts notable attendees such as Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian. Jacksons kids are accompanied by two bodyguards who wait outside the classrooms and follow them around campus. However, Oxman believes that may change in the coming weeks, according to the report.

La Toya also spoke about eight-year-old Blankets schooling future. When asked if the youngest of Michael Jackson's children would be attending Buckley soon, La Toya Jackson replied, He will, but not just yet. Hes a bit too young and he said hes not ready for it yet.
