Oprah Winfrey begged for forgiveness with tears in her eyes as she spoke to parents of students at her all-girls school in South Africa on Sunday.

There have been reports of various ‘personnel’ problems at Oprah’s school since it opened.
Didn’t Charles Dickens write about do-gooders like Oprah?
Their are personnel problems at US schools and those problems are still working at teaching.

She’s getting every bit of press out of this bit of chunp-change (to her, anyways) she paid for this. As if some stunt in afrikky is going to legitimize her and whoever she blesses........Leadership Academy indeed
(from the article).....Its not your fault. We dont blame you, the father reportedly told her. You trusted them. You have more passion for the school and its existence than anyone else in this country, including us parents.
Oprah opened the doors to The Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy in January to provide a high level of education to underprivileged girls.
There are bigger problems in other countries than just lack of money. Flooding these places with money won’t fix it.
So that’s what has gone wrong in my life for the last 16 years. Man, if Hillary wins there will be only 8 more years of soul crushing oppression of me and my family. Then the Clintons will stop destroying me for my relentless criticism of them and we can all retire.
Limousine liberal...she probably threw money at the schools, paid other to "handle it", got the good press she wanted and walked away from any other involvement. She is criminally culpable at worst, and a fluff-headed well intentioned naive Liberal at best.
Nothing a flaming tire over the neck wouldn’t cure...and I mean on Oprah.
My point in posting this is that she could have opened a slaughterhouse for African girls and the MSM would have never said a word. Cross Hillary and you get screwed.
Oprah, just go away.
Gather up Mrs. Clinton and both of you two turds just slither off back to hell and leave us alone.
Shouldn’t this drive home to the hard core libs that no manner of feel-goodism and money can protect kids from EVIL?
Evil can break through any barrier!
Oh, it won’t convince even one lib. They are immune from truth.
Who's parent talks like that? As your kid's parent, do you?
Not a major Oprah fan, but she didn't "handle it" that way. It seemed very hands-on when I watched the show about the girls' school. Oprah is not to blame for a sleazy headmistress, the sleazy headmistress is to blame.
We seldom hold our public schools here culpable for such crimes, heck we give them raises for being sleazes.
She should integrate the school. Isn’t there a greater learning opportunity?
Hey, Asshole, have you ever seen anyone die this way. I doubt it. Yes, you are an asshole, a perfect asshole for even suggesting such a thing. I'll bet you are a frigging coward too.
