Join The “Backpack Full Of Cash” Screening & Discussion In Harlem

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. BACKPACK features genuine heroes like the principals, teachers, activists, parents and most hearteningly, students who are fighting for their education.

Come Out & Be Apart of the Discussion. There will be Local Educators, Elected Officials, Community Leaders, DOE Charter School Authorizer and Parents
