>Mark Zuckerberg donates $100mil to failing school system

>Facebook CEO and Founder Mark Zuckerberg has donated $100mil into the School System in Newark, New Jersey. He is working together with the State’s Republican Governor and the City’s Democratic Mayor to improve an increasingly failing system. It is easy to be cynical about philanthropic donation, particularly from an under pressure CEO (the privacy stuff still rumbles on), but this seems a genuinely generous donation. Make up your own mind, but Oprah does continually point out how Zuckerberg tried to keep this donation public. Truth be told, does it matter if he get credit for it if his money does some good for children in Newark. It is also a rather nice demonstration of bipartisan, grown up politics in a country where left and right seem further apart than ever before.
