Saint Paul Federation of Teachers will be hosting a screening of Backpack full of Cash - a documentary narrated by Matt Damon on what happens to our communities as for profit education reform and vouchers move in. The film screening will be followed by a short discussion.

From the film's website: "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."
