Lincoln vs. Clinton

by James Franco

My dad teaches science at Lincoln High School. He's the only black teacher out of I think 20 or something. If I go to Lincoln, nobody will know he's my dad because my mom's white and I look a lot more white than black, plus I'll make him promise not to tell anyone. I start high school this September. I'm thinking about going to Clinton, but then I'd have to take the bus pretty far instead of just the mile walk. My dad hates that I hate science, but I'm disappointed in him too, so I guess we're even.
