There would not be as much need for charter schools if system was funded and ran correctly. In Taylor they choose to spend much taxes on overpaid salaries pensions and over abundance of manpower. If state would step in and make sure county and cities fund schools fairly as in Ohio I moved from in 1977 , less problems would arise. When I moved from Lorain they were cutting sports programs at Taylor schools in 1977. Also school I attended in Ohio was built in 1969 and looked much better than Truman which was newer.now Michigan has way less revenue than then. Efficiency and less greed is good now and would have been better then .and I am not talking teachers in particular. Remember $8 million grant Taylor got for unneeded firefighters? Lamarand was correct initially for turning it down.

And remember. Around 70% of property taxes goes to county.look how wayne county just throws money away with these outrageous pension programs etc. enacted under ficano. Is it a wonder Wayne county is is deep deficit?also jail is way over budget. Where has accountability gone to?Wayne county used to be one of richest counties and is probably among poorest now in USA.charter schools might have advantages but would ha.ve never been needed if public schools were efficient
