Jeb Bush Blasts Matt Damon for Sending Kids to Private School

Actor Matt Damon, who is an outspoken advocate for many liberal causes, recently stirred controversy when it was revealed that he is sending his kids to private school despite the fact that he has positioned himself as advocate of public education.

As The Hill reports:

Damon first publicly displayed his passion for the public school system at a “Save Our Schools” rally in 2011, when he got into a contentious exchange with a conservative reporter over teacher pay following his speech at the event.
