Backpack Full of Cash Documentary Screening

October 8, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

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.

Panel discussion with public education leaders will follow the film along with Q&A from the audience. Moderated by Yevonne Brannon of Public Schools First NC, the panel will feature Durham School Board member Natalie Beyer.

This event is co-sponsored by the Council and Public Schools First NC.
