Rod Stewart's Son Alistair, 5, Is Being Schooled Over Skype! Does This Sound Like A Bad Idea?

Fri, August 26, 2011 10:42am EST by 2 Comments

The five-year-old will get daily lessons in the family’s Las Vegas home, via videolink to a school in the UK!

Rod Stewart is determined to make sure Alistair won’t miss out on an education while he’s performing his Las Vegas show at Caesar’s Palace for the next two years. The online school is so sophisticated, Alistair will be able to attend lessons, download classwork and chat with his teacher 5,000 miles away from the classroom!

Alistair, 5, will be one of the first students to try out the internet-based distance learning system, developed by the Coopersdale Hall School in Rod’s native Essex, England.

It all sounds very hi-tech — but how will Alistair make friends through a video screen?

Rod insists it’s only a temporary measure, and Alistair will return home in the New Year, with his mom Penny Lancaster and baby brother Aiden, six months, to attend the school full-time.

What do you thin, HollyMoms? Are internet schools the future? Or do they take all the fun out of school?

Weigh in!

Nothing wrong with being homeschooled with the way schools are now. I homeschool both of my daughters and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I don’t have to worry about them being bullied and teachers not doing a thing about it, I don’t have to worry about what they are learning because I see all of it and most of all they are getting a quality education which is rare to get in a public school now a days.
