BACKPACK FULL OF CASH: Documentary Screening + Discussion

Documentary Screening + Discussion
Wednesday, October 10, 2018
6:30 PM
Event Oval, Diana Center LL1

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.

After the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring:

  • Dr. Alexandra Freidus, Urban Studies Program, Barnard College

  • Dr. Erika Kitzmiller, Program in Social Studies Education, Teachers College

  • Dr. Rachel Throop, Education Program, Barnard College

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
