Teachers’ Day Movies: Backpack Full of Cash & Once Upon a Time

May 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

  • This event has passed.

What better way to appreciate teachers? SFCCPA invites you to two films on education, from early care & education to our K12 public system: a celebratory & educational event — followed by community discussion.


Once Upon a Time
6:30 pm, 32 minutes
An episode of California Newsreel, The Raising of America
Imagine how different things would be today if quality early care and education had been available to any family that wanted it for the past 45 years. It almost happened! Thanks to California Newsreel for making & giving special permission to show this episode at The Roxie!


Backpack Full of Cash
7:05 pm, 1 hr 36 minutes
Before the 2016 U.S. presidential election and the appointment of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, filmmakers Sarah Mondale and Vera Aronow couldn’t have known that the national education debate would dramatically shift to the very issues at the heart of their film: charter schools, vouchers and privatization. Now, this timely new documentary, Backpack Full of Cash, takes viewers into the world of market-based education “reform.”


Pay what you can. Suggested prices are based on that fact that early care and education providers’ wages are half that of the average women’s wage (similar to a K12 teacher) and one third of the average male income earner. Teaching is #essentialwork — fund it!


Tickets available through The Roxie’s ticket office.
Ticket prices:
ECE educators – $4
K12 educators – $8
Average SF male wage earner – $12
Supportive high income earner! – $20
I’m doing fine and want to support educators! – $50

Support the San Francisco Child Care Providers’ Association. No one turned away for lack of funds.
