Oprah Speaks Out!

After reports surfaced of several students getting suspended for sexually harassing their schoolmates in Oprah Winfrey‘s boarding school in South Africa, it was only a matter of time before the Big O spoke out about the latest unfortunate incident.
Oprah has just released the following statement about what happened.
She says:

“I’m disappointed that several of our students chose to disregard the school’s rules. It’s disheartening when any student has to be suspended or expelled and it’s a process that involves serious review and consideration. We insist on maintaining a campus environment that commands mutual respect, fosters academic excellence and encourages learners to fulfill their best potential. Indiscretions resulting in disciplinary action are common in schools all over the world. Unfortunately, because of my name these common infractions place the Academy in the media spotlight.”

Common infractions???
Suspending fifteen students is not very “common”!
