Matt Damon Defends Teachers



    Meet a Former Radio City Rockette Who Got Her Life Back

    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.
