God forbid anyone dare complain publicly about Queen Oprah, but apparently that's exactly what some concerned parents are doing in regard to the strict rules Oprah's enforced at her blatantly sexist and elitist boarding school in South Africa:
A spokesman for Oprah Winfrey is responding Tuesday to allegations that her new school in South Africa is too strict.So Queen Oprah's authoritarian approach ("my way or the highway") to life is ruffling a few feathers? Well, should anybody be surprised? After all, the liberal press loves to exploit Oprah for all her "good deeds" without even considering the major flaw the Queen has in having to control and micro-manage everything she puts her stamp on. No wonder these parents are upset because while they want the best education for their children, most don't want to have to worry about sending their kids to an environment that resembles a prison instead of a school.
Parents say rules at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy make it difficult to keep in contact with their daughters.
The parents planned to voice their concerns during a satellite-linked conference with Winfrey, but it was canceled by the school board.
Rules restrict visits to once a month, and only allow calls to parents on weekends. Cell phone calls or e-mail are forbidden during the week, according to a report by South Africa's News 24.
Further, the report said, only four visitors are permitted per student, and all visitors must be approved a minimum of two weeks in advance. Junk food is also forbidden, the report said.
