Students take a trip to experience Occupy L.A. protest

Private-school students in fifth through eighth grades in Pasadena, Calif., took a field trip Tuesday to the Occupy Los Angeles event to discuss democracy with protesters and attend a local government meeting; an upcoming event included listening to a speech by a tea party member. "My goal as a teacher, regardless of my own personal beliefs, is to expose the students to as many viewpoints as possible," teacher Susanna Barkataki said. "We're here to get first-hand experience."
