A Charlottesville, Virginia 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 the song has resulted in a backlash from parents nationwide.
In the past few days, the song from the October performance has parents from Tennessee, Texas, and California accusing the third-graders of not being capable to come up with an idea so closely related to the Occupy Wall Street movement.
The lyrics include the lines — Some people have it all but they still don’t think they have enough. Yes — they’re the 1 percent. And — Now I’m part of the 99 — I used to be sad, now I’m satisfied. Kid Pan Alley’s Board of Directors clarified its guidelines shortly after the as the song came out.
