Narrated by Matt Damon, Backpack Full of Cash explores the growing privatization of public schools and the resulting impact on America’s most vulnerable children. This 90-minute documentary takes viewers through the tumultuous 2013–14 school year, into the world of what is now called education “reform.” In Philadelphia and other big cities, public education – starved of resources – hangs in the balance. NC is at a crossroads as we see more and more privatization of our public schools.
This event is FREE TO THE PUBLIC. Panel discussion with public education leaders will follow the film along with Q&A from audience.
