    area back then.  Michigan used to have fine schools throughout the state.  Engler started the cutbacks in educational funding and Reagan downplayed being smart and knowing a lot about a lot of things.  I went to Muskegon High School in the late 50s,early 60s and felt we had the same opportunities for a liberal education with options to specialize in business, college prep, building trades, etc.  We had marvelous music, art, drama, sports, journalism programs. This is what public schools can and should offer. Charter schools are taking funds away and are not showing very good results.  It's time to stop the drain and restore the excellent programs that used to exist in our public schools.
