[media-credit id=53 align=”alignnone” width=”300″][/media-credit] It all started with the Occupy Wall Street protests on Sept. 17 with their main slogan as “We are the 99%,” meaning that the majority of people are not amazingly rich as the 1% who are.

Recently, the Occupy Oakland protests have been dominating the local news. Now, college students at many schools, such as U.C. Berkeley, have been protesting for the raise in tuition fees.

Many people have been going crazy over these protests, resulting in the confinement of many of the protesters.

Regardless of the city or group, the main message of the “Occupy” protests have been the same, to focus on the social and economic inequality, the rise of unemployment, and the immoral aspects of the bank and financial systems of the government.

Now the question is whether these protest will effect high schools such as Carlmont.

On Tumblr, there is an Occupy Education site. Their mission is “about creating a new public education system that recognizes and values a broader definition of learning than that accounted for by tests. It’s about recognizing and valuing a broader community of children than those who benefit from the tests.”

So young activists of the Occupy protests could easily transition into Carlmont. Budget cuts have always been a problem for schools.

Recently, at a Bank of America in San Francisco, many Occupy demonstrators shouted, “Money for schools and education, not for banks and corporations!”

Will Carlmont have their own occupy members raiding nearby banks and corporations, demanding a change in the school system?
