"I would ask them: What is a priority in your schools? Because if working on having kids understand what mental health is isn't your first priority, before all the academics, I just don't understand it"
~Dominick Palma, Superintendent of Merrick Union Free School District in
Long Island, NY. - Today Show, 9/18/2019
