Henry County Public Schools (HCPS) will host a FREE screening of “Backpack Full of Cash” on March 26 at 6 p.m. in the Henry County High School auditorium.
This feature-length documentary, narrated by Matt Damon, 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.
“This is a very timely film due to the current reading of House Bill 205 regarding school scholarships and tax credits,” said HCPS Superintendent Terry Price. “This film truly brings to light what this can do to public education. I urge you – educators, parents, students and community members – to make time to view this film.”
