Welcome to the world of higher education. It's a magical place where tuition gets more expensive every year, while degrees get even more worthless. Montgomery Community College, located in Maryland will be offering classes about the Occupy Wall Street Movement this summer....for high school kids who happen to be taking classes at the school. There's no better way to prepare for college than to study a socialist movement about anarchy and rape right?

Students in ninth through the 12th grade attending summer programs at a community college outside Washington, D.C., will get a taste of the Occupy operation in a new course that aims to get them interested in "the movement for justice."

"Occupy MoCo!," one of the newest courses at Montgomery College in Montgomery County, Md., is part of the Summer Youth program offered for 2012.

"We are at an exciting time in the history of the world. People all over the planet are taking democracy into their own hands and working together to create solutions for a better world," reads the course description for YOU392.

"Take advantage of this interactive opportunity to learn critical thinking skills that will help you in college and gain insight into becoming a global leader of the 21st century. Learn about the Occupy Wall Street movement and explore real-life human rights implications. Review social justice concepts and explore human rights issues related to current events. Young people hold the power to change their community, their schools, their future -- are you ready to join the movement for justice?"

Ah yes, the movement for justice. Apparently Montgomery College officials believe "justice" includes rape, burning the American flag, damaging private property, costing taxpayers millions and defecating on police cars.

Regardless, the move is not surprising. Many "schools" around the country have simply become indoctrination stations for the Left. I always thought the entire point of taking college courses was to occupy a job afterward, not learn how to occupy a tent in a public park.
