Brown 1 Katrina Brown Mrs. Stephanie Casemore ENG4U n1+ April 4, 2019 Critical Media Assignment [need a creative title that reflects your purpose/topic; don’t use the assignment title] On April 4, 2019, more than 100,000 Ontarian students participated in a provincewide walkout to protest the education changes in the new education plan “Education that Works for You”, which was made by the Doug Ford Government to replace the previous liberal plan that this government declared as “failed” (Chen). When this plan was announced, many students were outraged as they believed that certain features of the plan would negatively impact them. A grade 12 Ontarian student by the name of Natalie Moore, publicised and organized the a walkout on social media, and thousands of other Ontarian students planned to participate (CBC News).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
