The public high school I attended was excellent in those days. Though less so now, it still wins awards and does pretty well in rankings among schools in a large state.

Our schools used to be much, MUCH better (and in the case of our state colleges and universities and community colleges, much more affordable) before an over-correction of property tax laws came about through the infamous and draconian Proposition 13. If you are interested, Google "Prop 13 Warren Buffett" to learn his take on that issue.

About the same as it was when I attended school, thirty years ago, EXCEPT there is now social media and iTechnology to encroach upon a person's attention.
