Obviously, We Aren't Spending Enough Money On Education
Here's a graph showing K-12 spending for the U.S. and the other major industrial powers. We're #2 in spending--but we are not even close to being #2 in the education level of our graduating high school seniors. I don't want to blame teacher unions (well, I do, but that wouldn't be fair). The real problem has a lot more to do with the values that Americans are passing onto their children about education.
