Oprah's School For Girls: A Nazi War Camp?

Oprah really rules with an iron fist and ass (from what I heard). The school that Oprah opened for girls near Johannesburg was applauded at first, but now it is getting a couple of puzzled looks and probably some "z-snaps" too. According to some of the upset/ungrateful parents of the girls who attend this school they are saying that it is too strict. They're also saying that it's almost impossible to remain in contact with their lucky-ass kids. At first parents could visit their kids every two-weeks, but not it's only once a month. One of the mothers, Frances Man, has recapped some of the rules of this school/prison system:
  1. No cell phones or emailing during the week.

  2. Girls are only allowed to call their parents on the weekends.
  3. They are only allowed four visitors and these visitors must be approved by the school at least two weeks in advance.
  4. Parents are only allowed to spend 2-hours with their kids.
  5. No junk food for the kids.
  6. The girls get "good behavior points" for which they can exchange for school clothes and caps.

Other parents are claiming that their daughters are calling home in tears because the rules are so strict. Yeah, ok so this may sound a little mean, but I heard about this school prior to it opening. According to Mother Oprah Winfrey prior to this school opening the girls would get raped on their way to their old school...almost every day. Ok, so I'm not trying to sound mean, but you either get raped or you get junk food and a cell phone. Is there really a choice? Plus, look at it this way, you basically know Oprah. All you need to do is get a couple of "A's," write a book about the experience, go on Oprah, have her promote your book, and become an instant millionaire. You'll be living in Beverly Hills and jogging with Posh Spice before you know it. As a side note, nothing seems more ungrateful than complaining about the free school that Oprah gave you with the free education. Oprah. Free. Oprah's free school. No rapes. You know Oprah. Free.

Who Said Strict!?!

This is a boarding school. Google out your nearest boarding school and you’ll find the rules are very similar to O’s academy. My brother goes to boarding school and the rules are much worse.

Boarding school is not like public school. It’s extremely challenging with shit loads of homework. These girls can’t be on the phone everynight because they won’t be able to finish their homework. They are being groomed for leadership. Bed time is always early at boarding schools.

Also, what the article fails to mention is the scandal surrounding the parents. When the parents were visiting their daughters on the weekdays the visits were extremely long and the parents were SMUGGLING OUT FOOD, LINENS, BOOKS, ETC! The parents were asking their daughter to do inappropriate things. These parents are not typical boarding school parents. They don’t have money and are poor. The administrators found this stuff out and had to make a difficult decision to limit the visits.

Lastly, South Africa has high crime, rape and kidnapping. They’ve got to limit the visitors because these girls are also prime for kidnapping. Everybody knows Oprah’s got money.

PS Leave Oprah alone and go make a difference.

Call me crazy, anonymous, but it sounded to me like IBBB was defending Oprah. Maybe read the original post next time before you write a five-paragraph rebuttal.

What a ridiculous post. It's not everyone's lifelong dream to jog with Posh Spice or become a millionaire. Some of us are happy doing the best we can and trying to make a difference. Typical, arrogant American. You are what makes this country so unbearable.

anonymous who said that Americans are arrogant: are you French? I'm not saying that French people are bad, but they usually call us pigs and all of that crap. If you are also an american, i laugh at that because apparently you have no common sense. It's dumbasses like you that make this country unbearable. I wouldnt have minded your post till the last sentence....and I rather be rich.
