Facebook CEO to donate $100 million to Newark public schools

I just heard on 101.5 that he's on Oprah today (right now) with Newark mayor Cory Booker (and maybe Chris Christie?) to talk about it.

    God knows they need it. I just hope it goes to the right place. I dislike Christie but that's either here or there LOL

    I heard he's doing it to help his image since the Social Network movie comes out and does not portray him well at all. No matter what, it certainly won't hurt Newark Public Schools!

    Yeah the CEO of FB is a jerk...I dunno why he chose Newark...Camden is actually much worse off. Newark actually has a fairly high graduation rate for an inner city school. Also throwing a bunch of money at a school doesn't suddenly solve all of it's problems.

    I think Newark is actually a better choice than Camden because of the combination of both Booker and Christie as a duo of go-getters.  Throwing money at a problem doesn't solve it (especially if it's placed in the wrong hands), but putting money in the right hands can definitely help. 

    I know a lot of people aren't, but I'm personally a fan of both Booker and Christie.
