Screening of Backpack Full of Cash

Reported by on 1/10/18

The Parent Diversity Advisory Council (PDAC) invites the community to a free screening of the film Backpack Full of Cash at 6:45 pm on Thursday, January 25, at Metea Valley High School.

Narrated by Matt Damon, this documentary explores the growing privatization of public schools and the resulting impact on America’s most vulnerable children. Backpack Full of Cash is a cautionary tale about how, in cities like Philadelphia, privatization and funding cuts have had a devastating impact on public schools, and the most vulnerable children who rely on them. The film also showcases a model for improving schools – a well-resourced public school system in Union City, New Jersey, where poor kids are getting a high quality education without charters or vouchers. The film features genuine heroes like the principals, teachers, activists, parents and most hearteningly, students who are fighting for their education.
