Reality mom Kate Gosselin says her children weren't "expelled" from school.

Two of Kate's sextuplets, Alexis and Collin, 6, are being homeschooled for right now because they were having a hard time dealing with school pressure and their parents' divorce.  Kate wanted to set the record straight that they weren't expelled from their private school.

"The school would never use that word. [Collin and Alexis] were not expelled. [The school] did not feel like they could meet their needs anymore, so it was decided they should leave, for now."

Along with teaching them at home with a tutor, Kate also sought therapy for them: "They've been the ones to verbalize the most that they miss Daddy. I could see that they're the ones struggling the most. [Collin] was upset and saying things out of frustration – he'd crumple his papers and throw them on the floor, Alexis was angry in a different way. She didn't want to sit still. She'd get up and want to run around."

The mom of eight says she's just doing the best she can to keep things consistent for her kids:  "I've kept the stability, the income – everything that they know and love – "I've come through on that," she says. "I am doing what my kids need me to do. That's really all that matters."
