CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. â€“ A Charlottesville-area elementary school has been accused of making students sing a pro-Occupy Wall Street movement song.
Written and performed in October as part of the Kid Pan Alley group at Albemarle County schools, â€œPart of the 99â€ has resulted in a backlash from parents nationwide, and has given the foundation reason to train its facilitators to steer students away from controversial subject matter in their songs.
As part of the regular Kid Pan Alley activities, children are asked about the topics of songs they want to write and sing about. In October, one of the children participating in the activities at Woodbrook Elementary School mentioned that he wanted to write about â€œhaving it all and losing it all,â€Albemarle County schools spokesman Phil Giaramita told CBS Washington.
â€œThe words â€˜Occupyâ€™ or â€˜Wall Streetâ€™ were not mentioned in the classroom,â€ Giaramita said.
