Given the constant chatter from the Obama administration and from teachers’ unions on the need to spend more for public education, let’s address the question “Is the U.S. spending enough on education?”
I propose we look at the stats in graphical form starting with charts of population and total spending, culminating with education spending per child.
1. Population vs Civilian Employees
2. Budget Per Civilian Employee
3. U.S. Population and Children Population
4. Education Spending in Constant Dollars
