Focus of project
Focus of project

  • There are many “occupy,” movements going on around the country right now. Most people are looking at the 99% and 1% economic protesters and rioters. The “occupy,” movement I would like to focus on for my project are the underlying issues regarding the reasons for the increase in student tuition over the past few years.

  • Just yesterday, 11-16-2011, the CSU board of trustee’s voted to increase tuition next semester by 9%!

  • I feel as though this project related to social justice because in my mind it is not socially justifiable to increase tuition rates on students who already struggle to get by through college.

  • I plan on conducting and interview with a professor, a current CSU or UC students paying higher tuition rates. Then I will compile footage together of protests along with a narrative to complement the video.
