Renowned author and advocate for children Jonathan Kozol has called it “a beautiful film” that “everyone who values democratic education needs to see”—and now you can watch Backpack Full of Cash at a free screening this February in New London.
Narrated by Matt Damon and directed by a teacher, the movie explores the real cost of privatizing public schools, driving home the point that public education should be a basic civil right.
The screening will take place Tuesday, Feb. 13, at 6 p.m. at Connecticut College, Olin Science Center, Room 014. Read more
