To end the organization with a grand finale, Winfrey announced the charity will be giving away $6 million to successful charter schools across the country.
The announcement comes as part of a two-day focus on education, in which the talk show host spoke to education advocates such as Bill Gates and Davis Guggenheim, the director of the documentary film "Waiting For 'Superman'."
The list includes Aspire Public Schools in California, the Denver School of Science and Technology, LEARN Charter School Network in Chicago, Mastery Charter Schools in Philadelphia, the New Orleans Charter Science and Math Academy and YES Prep Public Schools in Houston.
