Bill Gates Hangs With Oprah

    February 16, 2006

The AP is reporting that Bill and Melinda Gates went with talk show host Oprah Winfrey to a San Diego high school to talk about the Gates’ Foundation’s $11 million school reform project in the area.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave $11 million to the San Diego Unified School District in 2003 to reform three large high schools, said Music McCall, a spokeswoman for the district.

The district used some the money to divide San Diego High School itself into six smaller schools specializing in business; international studies; media, visual and performing arts; and science, among others, McCall said.

The visit will air as a segment on an upcoming Oprah episode.
