"Backpack Full of Cash," a documentary that explores the privatization of public education and enters the fray of Tennessee's debate on over-testing, is coming to Memphis. Matt Damon narrates the film that was featured at the Nashville Film Festival last year. The movie includes Nashville’s Gower Elementary School, as well as board member Amy Frogge of Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools. You can read more about the documentary in Chalkbeat's 2017 story.
