Public schools not welcome for Matt
Damon, longtime supporter of public schools and their teachers, will put his four daughters into private school this fall when the family moves to L. A., he told The Guardian.
Damon, Luciana Barroso, and their girls have been living in New York but bought an L. A. estate last year, right near his buddy Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and their three kids.
This school decision was tough, Damon said. He wants the girls to have something like “the public education that I had.” But he has to go private because “that kind of progressive education no longer exists in the public system. It’s unfair.”
He’s 42. The kids are Isabella, 7; Gia, 6 this month; Stella, 3; and Alexia, Luciana’s daughter from a previous marriage, who’s 15.
