"Actor Matt Damon is a strong supporter of America's public schools. Just two years ago, the star spoke passionately about the importance of public schools at a Washington DC "Save our Schools" rally.......

".....Damon revealed that he had just moved to Los Angeles from New York, but that he didn't "have a choice" when it came to putting his four daughters into private schools. The multi-millionaire did say that it was 'a major moral dilemma'......."

Now get the reason he used, it's a wowser, LOL

"..... that the public schools aren't "progressive" enough....."

CA public schools aren't Progressive enough? Where's he sending his snowflakes, Trotsky People's School Number 12?

Matt Damon Refuses to Enroll Kids in Los Angeles Public Schools

Oxymoron= a Hollywood shill having a "moral dilemma"

They need to stop blaring about gun control too. The day i saw PSA's about it with hollywood shills last december was the day I changed my mind 180 degrees.

He can send his child where ever he wants, we all know if you have money then private school is an option. That still doesn't change the importance of public schools for those who aren't rich.

Rich, white man sends kids to private school, but still sympathizes with the little people.

This is a non-issue. I liken it to him being a spokesperson for Ford and promoting the Ford Mustang while his personal vehicle is a Porsche 911 Twin Turbo.

[i would drive a Mustang but its not fast enough]

And he and his ilk can stop being so hypocritical while preaching to the masses.

Or better yet, shut up and just act, sing, juggle or whatever they do.

Hey, if I lived in LA or, closer to home, Newark, Camden or Patterson, my son would have been in a private school quicker than you can say "That's racist!"

Can you say:

Chuck Norris?

Ted Nugent?

And a whole slew of other celebrities on the right who preach to their masses?

After all, there is NO ONE more hypocritical than the pants crapping serial pedophile draft dodger Nugent.

Or is your outrage reserved for just those celebrities who speak to liberal issues?

Nah, I pretty much view celebrities and their worshippers all the same.

IMO, Norris and Nugent used to be celebrities. Haven't seen or heard their gigs in many years.

Not even on my radar like Matt Damon who's still in the game and is a great actor, imo.
