Matt Damon: Liberal hypocrite

Matt Damon loves public schools. His mom was a teacher, he went to public schools, his children go to…a private school? Wait a second. If private schools are so great, as Matt Damon says, then why aren’t his children enrolled in the Los Angeles public schools? Here’s his laughable answer:

“Sending our kids in my family to private school was a big, big, big deal,” he said. “And it was a giant family discussion. But it was a circular conversation, really, because ultimately we don’t have a choice. I mean, I pay for a private education and I’m trying to get the one that most matches the public education that I had, but that kind of progressive education no longer exists in the public system. It’s unfair.”

Here’s a tip for all the liberals out there: It’s ok to send your kids to a private school. They’re usually better and safer than the public schools in urban areas. The problems occur when you act like a hypocritical ass by building up a failed system, then abandoning it when it’s your time to truly support it.

If the Hollywood elite really care about the children in public schools, they should support vouchers and school choice. Or could it be that wealthy liberals really don’t want their children with “those kids”?
