Movie Star Defends Public Education and Teachers
Although it sometimes feels like the world is against teachers, this is certainly not the case!
Very often we forget in our insulated environments that people do care and are willing to speak up for teachers and the value of education. But when a public figure balks at all the political drama surrounding education and speaks out in support of it, that is something of great value!
Matt Damon: Movie star, father of three, and the son of a public education teacher, spoke at the “Save Our Schools” educator rally in Washington.
He spoke freely from his heart but also called out all political proselytizers who use educational issues for their own gain. His take on the current issues such as the perceived value of standardized testing in public education are common sense, straightforward and certainly gives current government administrations something to think about.
