The BNS/BCS Parent Action Committee (PAC) is a group of parents within our 610 Henry St community who are working together to preserve, support, and promote high quality child-centered public education for all students.
This documentary, narrated by Matt Damon, takes an urgently-needed look at how charter schools, vouchers, and the privatization movement are threatening public schools. Screening followed by wine & hors d’oeuvres reception and panel discussion with teachers, parents, and community advocates.
