NEW YORK (CBS) – Two of the 6-year-old Gosselin sextuplets are reportedly having a hard time at their Pennsylvania private school.

According to In Touch magazine, Collin and Alexis were expelled for “rage issues” and are now being home-schooled.
“They’ve fought with their peers, called them nasty names and made fun of other kids,” a source close to the family told the magazine, according to the New York Post.
The source also said the issues at school were stemmed from the filming of the new TLC reality series “Kate Plus 8.”
TLC did not comment on the situation, but the source told the Post that mom Kate Gosselin’s “number one concern is protecting her children and is keeping this personal situation as a private matter that she works out with her kids.”
Recently, she has been under fire from her ex-husband Jon Gosselin, who failed to convince a judge to stop TLC from filming “Kate Plus Eight”, about her decision to keep their kids on television.
He responded to the judge’s decision on his Twitter account last month, and said the show has given their children emotional and behavioral problems.
“I will not stop fighting to remove my children from television,” he wrote according to the Huffington Post. “It is not a child’s job to support themselves, or a lifestyle, they need to be kids.”
