Winfrey donates $6 million to troubled school programs

The talk show host donated the sum to six educational institutes in Philadelphia, California, Colorado, Illinois, Louisiana and Texas in a bid to boost their good work.

Winfrey’s Angel Network charitable organisation described them as “ground-breaking leaders in the provision of quality public education”.

The donation announcement came as the star hosted a panel of education reform advocates on Monday (20Sep10), which saw Microsoft founder Bill Gates and Davis Guggenheim, the director of upcoming documentary film Waiting for Superman, support the cause.
