Matt Damon headed to Washington DC Saturday to join the Save Our Schools March, a rally against education policies centered on standardized tests. The actor even addressed the crowd and made a speech. Matt Damon said of his experience with public schools, "I was raised by a teacher. My mother is a professor of early childhood education. And from the time I went to kindergarten through my senior year in high school, I went to public schools. I wouldn’t trade that education and experience for anything." He was still sporting the bald head he shaved for his role in Elysium, which has been in production up in Canada. Matt Damon's daughters accompanied him to Vancouver, along with his wife Luciana, and they've been seen out enjoying family bike rides. Matt wrapped up his politicking by yesterday afternoon, when he was seen at the airport heading back to Canada. Despite the far-flung travels, Matt still showed love for his Boston hometown with his sweatshirt and stopped to sign autographs for fans before boarding.
