Narrated by Matt Damon, this feature-length documentary, Backpack Full of Cash, explores the growing privatization of public schools and the resulting impact on America’s most vulnerable children. Filmed in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Nashville and other cities during a tumultuous school year, this timely new documentary takes viewers into the world of market-based education “reform” where public education, starved of resources, hangs in the balance.

Post-screening panel discussion with Q&A exploring the key issues at the heart of the film, including charter schools, vouchers, and privatization, will follow.

As space is limited, registration is strongly recommended.
