In his first term, Eric proposed four major plans, including the Passageway Congestion Alleviation Act, Universal Requisite Timekeeper Act, Student Wellness and Disease Protection Act, and a foreign travel ban. Before the school closure, Eric laid the groundwork for his greatest proposal yet. Eric attended all meetings and volunteered at all Student Council events. Although he did not get all legislations passed, he will continue to work with other members and create bipartisan solutions to issues.
Agenda for next year
Eric has laid out 11 plans for his second term in the Student Council. Here’s what he hopes to achieve:
Tough teachers and grading are obstructing AB students from achieving their vision of academic success. Eric will bring test corrections of up to 3% to all classes and make sure every student will live up to their God-given potential. In addition, Eric will eliminate racism and bias from humanities subjects by making grading on writing assignments anonymous. A student’s future shouldn’t be based on race, gender, or favorability.
Racism & AAPI Community
Recent events such as George Floyd’s death and the racial disparity of COVID-19 deaths led us to reflect on the injustices that affect our community of color. Millions of Americans, as well as people from other countries, have expressed their outrage and frustration through peaceful protests. Many have resorted to violence or extreme ideas, but Eric believes in common-sense solutions and will take meaningful actions to bring equality to all. Anonymous grading, the establishment of an anti-racism task force, and tougher punishment will end racism at AB.
Racism and discrimination against the AAPI community isn’t just an important issue, it is a personal issue. The AAPI community is the group that faces the most obstacles in education. As a staunch opponent of affirmative action, racial quotas, and discriminatory policies for the sake of diversity, Eric will fight hard to bring equity to the AAPI community.
