The Spiteful Lars School for Spite

That would be an odd name for a school wouldn't it? So what's up with the "Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls"?

The school Oprah built opened today at a cost of around $40 million dollars. It will educate 150 girls aged 12 and 13. The school will not educate any boys, presumably because boys are fine without fancy book learning. The school will also not educate the other 3350 applicants who didn't make the cut.

"(the school) Built on 21 hectares, the 28-building campus resembles a luxury hotel with state-of-the-art classrooms, computer and science laboratories, a library, a theatre and a wellness centre. Each girl has a two-bedroom suite." (link to full story here)

I know this is a good deed, and I'm not claiming South Africa would be better off without it. I just wonder if $40m could have been used more effectively to educate a wider range of a population that needs much in the way of infrastructure help.

She's still better than Rosie and Trump though, so semi-kudos Oprah.
