An offhand comment by Matt Damon concerning school choice continues to draw fire, this time from a prominent member of the Bush family.
Former Gov. Jeb Bush sent out a tweet linking to a Breitbart News item on Damon deciding to send his own kids to private, not public, school. Damon is a reliably left of center entertainer, one who extols the wonder of public education and the need to pay public school teachers higher wages. Yet he bypassed California’s public school system recently in order to enroll his own children in a private school.
That inspired Bush to send out the following tweet:
Matt Damon Refuses to Enroll Kids in Los Angeles Public Schools. Choice ok for Damon, why not everyone else?
