    Lightbulb oprah right or wrong?

    I don't know if this is the right section for this but ima try. sorry if it's against the rules for this but it seemed like a topic starter. Since most topics here are like old.

    Do you all think oprah is right or wrong for building a school in south Africa, rather than a school here in America? Most people are pissed others agree. What do u think?

    Ok there aremore aficans dieing than us americansand also yes i do belive she did a good job doing so. they need education so they can go somewhere in thier lives. if we dont teach tehm thier just humans who aren't 'on a leash' and just begg for food and water. that liek saying that if i was right in giving a homless person who was starving a sandwich.

    I agree with Spin Da Ish. America's educational system is much better compared to South Africa's as far as I know. They need it way more then us. I mean if you are born in America then you are most likely going to go to school and have the chance to make something of yourself. In South Africa it is not as likely. Correct me if I am wrong anyone.

    no i dont think your wrong at all but there are a lot of drop outs in america. and its all becuase of drop-outs not becuase they cant find more schools. Aficans need a place to be educated and oprah made one

    Yeah, I know. I guess what I was trying to say is that kids in America most have the choice whether to stay in school or not and make something of themselves. I mean a shortage of schools is just not a problem for America. If there is a problem with America's educational system it is how they manage it and its students. But in Africa a shortage of schools is a problem so it's good that Oprah did what she did.

    yea man like in america theres more tahn enought room in schools to have every kid in, they can stay or not but we would still have room. In africa there are so little schools, puting one humousgous school would make everyone come but not all of them would be teached. more celebrities should do as oprah did cuz normal people can't afford to do so

    We have enough schools in the US as it is, I'm actually impressed she did that since its more of a worthy cause. Kids in Africa need knowledge too not just us.

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    America? Enough schools for kids? I guess you guys werent around when the educational system was saying that there were 30 kids in a classroom because of low teachers. The fact of the matter is? There is no more room in schools without more teachers. Teachers need better benefits. I mean, they are the ones who teach our future.

    And as for whether Oprah was right or wrong? She was definitely in the right. Africa needs to gain a nice foothold, that way they can walk without any help.
