Actor Matt Damon took a break from his busy film schedule for a political cause this weekend. The Oscar winner hit the streets of Washington, D.C., for the Save Our Schools March, protesting education policies based on standardized testing. Damon attended public schools growing up, and told the crowd, "I honestly don't know where I'd be today if that was the type of education I had. I sure as hell wouldn't be here. I do know that." Damon, 40, supported Obama's 2008 presidential campaign, but has since criticized the President. Damon is currently filming a sci-fi flick, Elysium, in Vancouver.
