Matt Damon Defends Teachers, Matt Damon spoke to the teachers during the Save Our Schools March in Washington, DC, with thousands of educators, parents, children and others who care about the state of education in the U.S.
Crowds braved the scorching weather to show their concern for the morale of teachers and the process of rigorous testing that many feel has the joy of learning and creativity.
The grassroots effort is instead seeking funding for communities equally manifest in public schools, the ultimate test of high risk and allow the curriculum of local development can be better tailored to children who are intended to educate.
Educators, authors, school board members and policy experts became provide support, and some other celebrity supporters to get behind the movement included Richard Dreyfuss, Dave Eggers and Jon Stewart, speaking through a video broadcast at the event.
Damon, whose mother is an educator, gave the closing speech at the event.
“My teachers were empowered to teach. His time was not taken with a lot of test preparation – this year-and-kill silly nonsense that anyone would know that does not promote real learning. No, my teachers were free to approach me and all the other children in the classroom as an individual puzzle, “he said.
Of course, Damon spoke to reporters during the day, resulting in an exchange of heat between him and the TV crew why, when asked if the teachers might not work as hard as they needed because they had security at work too.
Damon seemed to find this idea ridiculous, saying: “A teacher wants to teach. I mean, why would have a salary! *$$#, And very long hours and do the job, unless you really like to do? “
