Eighth Graders Participate In Teach NYS Lobbying Trip In Albany


This week ten eighth graders visited Albany, the capital of New York. They were there advocating for more STEM funding for Yeshivas, more security for non-public schools, and lower tuition costs. Additionally, they met with many New York State Senators and Assemblymen, such as Daniel Rosenthal, Joe Addabboo, and a representative for John Liu. They also listened in on assembly meetings and were even given a shout out by the Speaker of the Assembly. All in all, these students advocated extremely nicely for their ideas and there is a strong possibility that these ideas will be made into laws, soon in the future.
