Public School Advocate Matt Damon Enrolls Kids in Private School

In an interview with the Guardian published Saturday, 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” and then made the bizarre excuse that the public schools aren’t “progressive” enough.
This would probably mark the first time anyone has ever complained that America’s public schools, especially in Los Angeles, aren’t left-wing enough.
The Guardian interview is part of the 42 year-old actors promotional tour for his upcoming sci-fi tentpole “Elysium,” which opens Friday.
According to early reviews, “Elysium” is a big-budget action film that condemns a future Los Angeles where the super-rich use their wealth and privilege to separate themselves and their families from the city’s poor.
