BACKPACK FULL OF CASH
Thursday, February 8, 6:30 pm
NYSUT is excited to announce a FREE screening for NYSUT members, family, friends, and community members. This feature-length documentary explores the growing issue of the privatization of public schools. Filmed in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Nashville and other cities, BACKPACK FULL OF CASH takes viewers through the 2013-2014 school year, exposing the world of corporate-driven education reform where public education — starved of resources — hangs in the balance. The documentary features genuine heroes like the principals, teachers, activists, parents, and students who are fighting for their education. “Backpack” builds a case for public education as a basic civil right.
