Matt Damon supported  teachers on July 30 as part of the Save Our Schools March and National Call to Action in Washington, D.C., and spoke out why peole choose teaching as porfession. He also got kind of frustrated with the interviewer.

Save Our Schools is  a

a grassroots movement dedicated to restoring educator, parent, student, and community influence over education policy and practice…Our goal is to put public school stakeholders back at the center of all education policy conversations, and to refocus national, state, and local efforts on providing the resources and support schools need in order to provide a high-quality education for each and every student.

Save Our Schools seeks

equitable funding for all public school populations and for ending high-stakes testing for students, teachers and schools.
