To Camel, Beydummy, Kanye & you thirst for attention cumbuckets, this is giving back. Not flaunting fifth grade level shit and pictures we've seen of your crusty ass.

Good for LeBron being the face of the school. Each student will be eligible for government grants to pay tuition.

I need Beyonce, Jay-Z, Oprah, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, Denzel Washington etc...to take a lesson from LeBron, he's is his BROTHER'S KEEPER.

Instead of seeling your clothing that people can't afford, concerts they can't afford to go to, merch - EMPOWER the CHILDREN so the NEXT GENERATION is set up to win. You have the AUTHORITY, MONEY and CONNECTIONS.

Oprah opened her school over seas and was hit with DRAMA right away, she should have over 50 schools by now and she doesn't so where did it go wrong? She didn't support people who looks like her.

LeBron. Proud of you young brother. This is what you do with money. So happy for the entire community. He seemed to have thought of everything.

This is what the fuck you're supposed to do. Give these young blacks a chance and oppurtunity to become something great. Give the youth the same tools to succeed as the fortunate and rich and watch us soar

Lebron just schooled Michael Jordan's greedy hateful ass. I'm wishing Lebron the best with his endeavor.

Slow clappp. These celebs and their "schools" often have a hidden and cruel agenda. Will be watching how this turns out however.

Need to open a school for all those slow ass black women idolizing/worshipping Beydummy Church. Can't get no slower than that.

Michelle must be teaching her how to read in exchange for coming to her concerts. Now, it all makes sense.

I have nothing but positive things to say about this. Thank you LeBron! This wtf I'm talking about. Yes, black man!

This is why I fuck with Lebron James! He walks out like he talks it. What has Jordan ever did for black people? I'll wait.......

This is an awesome thing Mr.James is doing, much respect due with disparaging anyone else.

Damn can't the man have a damn post of excellence without bringing the Carter's into it? People claim to want their touring asses to sit down somewhere but then they are brought up in posts that have nothing to do with them.

This was a school that used HIS money to build the building and the infrastructure...and made sure it did the accreditations so that it would be part of the public school system...yet, it DID NOT use money from the public school system to build the school and run it (not hitting taxpayers pockets)...so THIS SCHOOL...unlike CHARTER SCHOOLS will not deprive OTHER public schools of much needed dollars...and UNLIKE CHARTER SCHOOLS...this school was made...SPECIFICALLY for the children that NO SCHOOL WANTS! I always said that if you take the WORST child and put them in the BEST atmosphere...they will consistently and positively evolve...I have seen it happen time and time again...THIS school handles issues for not only the child...but the child's parents...I am actually CRYING as I write this...because I have waited...SO LONG...FOR SOMEONE WHO HAD THE MEANS...TO TRULY DO THIS!

@8:57, Although the school used the James Foundation money for infrastructure, it will also be using taxpayer money for upkeep. It's part of the public school system. The only difference is that it will get extra funding from the James Foundation. It's no different than charters that use both public and private funds. Last but not least, not all charters cherry pick students. Some charters do indeed take the worst.

@8:04, I think you are referring to Will & Jada's Scientology charter. Everybody else has regular schools that have no secret agendas lol The problem with some celebrity charters are the people they hire to run and manage the schools. It becomes more about business and making money versus actually teaching the students and seeing them progress with positive results.
