Dr. Yingchao got involved in public school system and local community soon after his family moved to West Windsor from New York City in 2000. He was twice elected as the chair of the school board for Huaxia Chinese School at Plainsboro (HXPCS), which is the largest branch school within the Huaxia Chinese School systems. He attended WWP school district board meetings regularly, making public comments and proposals, suggesting solutions for school issues. Most recently, he proposed and successfully gained support and approval to put Chinese New Year on school calendar. All his three children are currently enrolled in the WWP school district. He is keen on public school education systems in America, and entered the race for the two open seats for the WWP school board in the Nov 5th election. While not being elected, he gained more valuable experiences and insights to the school district during the election campaign through his communications with the school board, the district administrators, and parents.
