Location:
Fiedler Atrium

Hosted by First United Methodist Church Dallas, Pastors for Texas Children and the Coalition for Equity in Public Education, please join us for a screening of Backpack Full of Cash followed by a Q and A with local education leaders.

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, it takes viewers through the tumultuous 2013-14 school year, exposing the world of education “reform” where public education – starved of resources- hangs in the balance.
