As a child, I used to watch a lot of animation movies like Disney  and these movies have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. The violence that is present in some of them has never really bothered me and my parents never saw the need to restrict me from watching these movies because they were G-rated. However, times have changed and the PG rating was introduced. Now, it is almost impossible for a movie to be rated as general and the slightest little bad joke or violence will put it in the requiring parental guidance category.

As a child of one immigrant parent and one Quebec-born parent, I have always been surrounded by different cultures and languages. Although I chose to pursue my higher education in English, I consider myself first and foremost a francophone. Furthermore, as a Modern Languages student, I am concerned by the influence of language on society. Decades after bill 101 was passed, there is still controversy about the way language should be controlled in Quebec.

In CÉGEP, students’ global academic performance is evaluated by the R-Score. To attribute numbers to students has the effect of categorizing them in a linear way. The R-Score that you obtain determines if you are poor, good enough, or excellent, and it does not take into consideration any of your personality traits. This means that your acceptance into different university programs only depends on this number that is attributed to you. The importance that is given to the R-Score encourages competition between students, and so individual success.
