Description

Filmed in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Nashville and other cities, BACKPACK FULL OF CASH explores the privatization of public education and its devastating impact on the nation's most vulnerable children. Narrated by Matt Damon and featuring interviews with historian Diane Ravitch, policy analyst Linda Darling Hammond, and journalist David Kirp, the film follows students, parents, teachers and activists through the tumultuous 2013-14 school year, giving viewers an inside look at how a well-organized coalition of wealthy “reformers” is privatizing America’s public schools.

In Attendance: Sarah Mondale, Director; Vera Aronow, Producer/Co-Editor
