Event description

Description

"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 geting a high quality education without charters or vouchers. BACKPACK builds a case for public education as a basic civil right.
