Read the Foreign Affairs Committee’s Policy Points here:
Bilingual Education for English Speaking Students
MYD supports a policy centered on including heightened standards regarding bilingual education for English speaking students in New York City. This will prove extremely advantageous in equipping students with stronger communication skills and will prepare young minds for the rapidly globalizing world.
Stronger green energy initiatives to reduce our dependence on foreign oil
MYD would support legislation that establishes targets for NYC businesses to implement solar powered engineering and/or offering incentives such as tax breaks for those that greatly contribute to green energy research and reach targets with immediacy. MYD also supports penalizing businesses that emit excessive amounts of greenhouse gases and that don’t take the necessary steps towards reaching targets stated in the aforementioned legislation.
