The Knoxville League, in cooperation with six cosponsors, is putting on three showings of the film, Backpack Full of Cash. The film is a cautionary tale about how privatization and funding cuts, in cities like Philadelphia, 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 public 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.
We hope League members will come to one of the showings and bring their neighbors and friends. Far too few people understand how school "reform" initiatives like school vouchers and charter schools threaten our schools, indeed our American way of life. This film starts to open up that conversation.
