The Texas Promise Screening


Friday March 20, 2015 @ 7:30PM

When Texas cut $5.4 billion from public schools, affecting 5 million students, Texans protested and districts sued the state and won. The Texas Promise is the gripping story of equity, politics, money, and our children as Texas and the nation make historic decisions about education, opportunity and our democracy. An interview with NIEER Director Steve Barnett is included in the movie. The film will be playing at the Bruno Walter Auditorium at Lincoln Center (111 Amsterdam Avenue) on March 20th at 7:30pm and will be followed by a Q&A with the cast and crew.  Doors open at 7PM. Tickets are $20. You can buy tickets in advance or pay cash at the door. Watch the trailer.
