"Both Jon and Kate were sent a letter from the head of school explaining that despite their best efforts, staff had reached a point at which they had to request the children enroll in another program. It's clear Kate did not tell the truth."
Both Alexis and Colin received three full weeks of intensive special treatment to focus their behavior. While the teacher was able to achieve some success, it became apparent to the school that the pair needed intensive assistance to help them with their social, emotional and academic needs.
The demand on the children's classroom teachers — and the impact on other kids — was just too great.
Alexis and Collin could go to a public school but they would be photographed and harassed, It's clear the kids need to be integrated back into their private school, if they want to keep them at the same place.Or they can be sent to the school with the Gosselin's other kids. They can't just be tutored, at home: these kids need to be integrated with other children.
Jon and his girlfriend Ellen take them to public parks to play with other kids and they tell them to go and make friends, because it's clear they need to develop their social skills.
Collin actually covered his face when he was having his school photograph taken because he thought he shouldn't be photographed. Here you have children living in rural Pennsylvania and they don't understand why people are taking pictures.
Kate needs to get on the same page as Jon: he doesn't want them to have those pressures during their childhood, because they both need to live with the decision that they decided to do the show in the first instance."
Ugh. Those poor kids!
