Mark Zuckerberg, the 26-year-old founder and chief executive of Facebook Inc., plans to announce a donation of up to $100 million to the Newark schools this week, in a bold bid to improve one of the country's worst performing public school systems.

Cool move! Wonder why he chose Newark...

Cory Booker seems like a pretty genuine guy... hopefully he's not secretly an a$$hole.

I was referring more to Sharpe James hahaha... I have no problems with Booker so far. His street fight dvd documentary was well done

At this point I don't think his "image" matters. He is a billionaire and is set for 100 lifetimes, lol....

If you think about it, once you have all of that money, what's left for you to be concerned with besides your image?

But I was confident that MZ was a good person. Hopefully he keeps it up.

I guess, but I wouldn't consider him a public figure per se. He seems to be fairly to himself....

I agree, and if he is an a$$hole at least he hides it unlike Christie.

I like Christie, but this money will go to waste again. If over $20,000 a year per student spent already in that city isnt helping already, then $100 million more is not going to help.

Also according to film The Cartel (great documentary) there are over 400 admins in the Newark school system making over $100,000 a year. What a waste and the money will go into the pockets of politicians and admins.

Newark has a high drop out rate among their students in the local schools. Hes got the money, why not hand it where its needed?

He shoulda gave it to cover the cap for the Devils though...... :whistling:
