Did you know Alberta’s Premier is investing nearly $75 million to support privately run Charter Schools? As we have seen with the Ford Government’s Agenda, the threat of privatized education in Ontario is real. We invite you to a private, ETFO and friends viewing of BACKPACK FULL OF CASH, a documentary outlining the effects privately run Charter Schools have had on public education in the United States.
Narrated by Matt Damon, this feature-length documentary explores the growing privatization of public schools and the resulting impact on America’s most vulnerable children. Filmed in Philadelphia, New Orleans, Nashville and other cities, BACKPACK FULL OF CASH takes viewers through the tumultuous 2013-14 school year, exposing the world of corporate-driven education “reform” where public education — starved of resources — hangs in the balance. Become informed so together we can share knowledge and encourage our community members to vote for a provincial government who will support and save our public education system.
For locations and registration details, please view the attached poster.
