Lots of adults think that children should not be taught about Occupy Wall Street.
Here, at Cool Like Pie, we believe that learning about this protest is educational and important. After all, kids need to develop their own personal belief systems.
Occupy Wall St is a big protest that is going on in New York City and in other cities all over the world including
Atlanta, Nashville, and Oakland .
The protestors, most of whom are peaceful,
want things about our economy to change, so they are gathering together in giant groups and trying to promote their ideas.
I recently read an article in the New York Times that was discussing the increasing presence of kids at Occupy Wall Street.
If kids are there, then kids should be educated about it.
Education is never a bad thing.
Teaching kids to understand what is happening in the world is the point of educating.
