I am really glad we had a reading about the occupy movement, because until now, I honestly did not know much about it. I knew that the economy was struggling and that people were losing jobs, but that is about all I knew. Reading this piece and getting a bigger sense of this movement and how it affected people leaves me amazed that it was never discussed in any of my classes at the time. Considering this, I feel like schools (especially history classes) need to do more to discuss current events with students. Schools should be fostering discussions about events going on around the world and encouraging their students to take a stand and raise their voices.
