Mark Zuckerberg, chief executive and a founder of Facebook, has agreed to donate $100 million to improve the long-troubled public schools in Newark, and Gov. Chris Christie will cede some control of the state-run system to Mayor Cory A. Booker in conjunction with the huge gift, officials said Wednesday.
Although this move is commendable you have to ask yourself whether the timing of this donation has anything to do with the upcoming release of "The Social Network", which is not mentioned in this article at all. Are we being intentionally distracted? Is this a PR stunt?
