School Comes First

Parents say that school comes first.

Teachers say school come first.

I've even started to believe school comes first.

What about sanity? What about family? What about health? Does that not matter in the big scheme of things? Is school so important that kids die for it, that family's go broke for it?


We are not machines. We are people.
