Matt Damon is VERY passionate when it comes to public school! In fact, he says he wouldn't be where he is today if it wasn't for the education he received in his childhood!
So when it came time to send his four precious daughters off to school, he made the obvious decision to enroll them into private schools!
Despite his advocacy for public schools in the past, Matt decided to send his girls to private school, a move that some people are saying is hypocritical.
The actor explained himself in a recent interview saying:
"Sending our kids in my family to private school was a big, big, big deal. 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."
Sounds like Matty is singing a different tune when it comes to the public education system!
But at the end of the day, does it really matter where he decides to send his kids?
As a parent, the most important thing for Matt should be making sure his daughters get the best education possible, and if he feels that's at private school, then that's where he should send them!
