Arne Duncan tries to co-opt Matt Damon; Matt says no
Last month I mentioned Matt Damon's speech against high-stakes testing at the teachers rally in DC.
Now the Post's Valerie Strauss reports that US DOE tried hard and failed to woo Damon:
According to two people familiar with the efforts, the administration tried to arrange a meeting with Damon and government officials, including Education Secretary Arne Duncan, before the July 30 march.There was no meeting. Go Matt.
