September 29th: Join me at a Backpack Full of Cash screening in the RVA!

I promise to publish a post soon on what I am up to now that I am finished with my doctoral program (and the job market). In the meantime, on Sunday, September 29th, 2019, starting at 3 pm, join me at Huguenot High School in Richmond (7945 Forest Hill Ave, Richmond, VA 23225) for a free screening of Backpack Full of Cash, sponsored by the Virginia Education Association (VEA), the Chesterfield Education Association (CEA), and the Richmond Education Association (REA), and supported by local public school parent activists.

Narrated by Matt Damon, this feature-length documentary examines the growth and trend of privatization of our public schools and how that impacts America’s most vulnerable children in particular.

Following the screening, I will serve on a panel of local education experts and will discuss what charter schools are, current education reform efforts in Virginia and around the country, including the expansion of Career and Technical Education (CTE)--including what that is and should be--as well as what people can do to stop privatization of public schools.

An audience Q&A will round out the forum.

Register using this link today! And spread the word. The movie and forum is free and open to the public.
