A national survey in 2013 indicated that a large majority 69% of respondents were in favour of repealing section 43 of the Criminal Code with respect to teachers.

    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.
