Are we getting any value for the money we spend on public education? Here is the most recent data (2009) I could find based on the total spend from age 6 to age 16 compared to the OECD countries.
This reminds me of the auto industry back in the late 70′s and 80′s where we were told to buy American even though the cars were more expensive and bad. Now we are told we need to spend more money on education and we are getting bad results. It is time to fundamentally rethink the way we educate our children. The public education system is another K car.
My 2 cents
