Actor Matt Damon is getting a lot of credit for standing up for teachers across the country.
He attended the Save Our Schools March here in D.C.
During an interview at the event, a reporter with Reason TV, implied teachers are only motivated by fear of losing their jobs.
“A teacher wants to teach. I mean, why else would you take a sh**ty salary and really long hours and do that job unless you really love to do it,” said Damon.
Damon was at the rally with his mother, who is also a teacher.
