    "We have never invested as much in public education as we should have"

    Yeah, cuz clearly the problem is that we don't spend enough money on education, never mind that only 3 countries on the entire planet spend more per student than the USA.

    Fun little graphic illustrating the absurdity that the problem is not spending enough money on education.

    If more government is the answer, then it's a really stupid question.

    Not saying more money is the solution but, does your graphical illustration compare how far a dollar will go from place to place?

    I wish I had a good solution to all of this but I don't. Traditionally it seems we just throw more money at something rather than try to fix it. Being married to a teacher, it's really hard to see the fallacies and see nothing being done about it. All of the ideas I have heard are horrible.....
