Skip to comments.Hollyweird: Michelle Malkin Confronts Matt Damon
Posted on 08/06/2011 7:20:51 PM PDT by AustralianConservative
Actor Matt Damon is a walking, talking public service reminder to immunize your children early and often against La-La-Land disease, states syndicated columnist, and popular blogger, Michelle Malkin, in Schooling Matt Damon a dig at Hollyweird.
The movie star has been criticized, for uncritically praising bureaucrats and state school teachers, at a time when many American students are functionally illiterate. Damon has also attacked standardized tests, in favor of feelings-first lessons.
Continues Malkin, Students cant master simple division or fractions because todays teachers churned out through lowest common denominator grad schools and shielded from competition have barely mastered those skills themselves. Un-educators have abandoned drill and kill computation for multicultural claptrap and fuzzy math, traded in grammar fundamentals for creative spelling, and dropped standard civics for save-the-earth propaganda and Alinskyite activism.
Perhaps Damons hero Obama agrees with Malkin. His girls attend private school.

Dude is outstanding at pretending to be someone he isn’t . Pretending to know something he doesn’t ... Not so much.
Most of the politicians who support keeping the public schools as they are send their children to private schools.
Think I read that Matt’s momma is a skool techer.
Worse. She’s a college professor who teaches people to be school teachers.
Damon and Affleck’s parents were teachers. So, naturally they were socialists. And I’m not sure but I think Damon’s first T.V. work was on public television.
Isn’t Matt a member of F.A.G.?
And the people who vote for them (who can afford it)
Another reason for the seperation of school and state.
Damon is a communist.
Not a smart communist.
Nope, he’s not. Also a player in this gambling fiasco.
You nailed it.
There’s a reason I rarely go to the movies anymore.
Those politicians sound like hypocrites. Public school is good but not good enough for their princesses?
Shes doing a fine job of raising illiterates.
That explains so much. Theyre overprotective.
Team America, right? Yeah- complete F.A.G. types.
Ever heard of the Atlanta school system?
Yeah, they just wanna teach!
You wrote: “Damon and Afflecks parents were teachers. So, naturally they were socialists.”
They were also neighbors of Howard Zinn, known member of the Communist Party of the USA and author of the revisionist history book: The People’s History of the United States.
Damon as “Will Hunting” publicized this book as one that will “knock you on your ass.” It’s a bunch of socialist revisionist hooey.
Of course it is hypocrisy. They know that for the most part public schools are a failure.
