Chart: What Is Wrong With U.S. Priorities?

The chart below puts in plain terms the impact of U.S. policies.  The focus is on how the United States has rising college tuition costs, leaving students deep in debt while some Scandinavian countries not only provide free college education but also provide a stipend for students to live on while they are in college.  The chart also compares U.S. education funding with funding of prisons and funding of the military; it also criticizes the privatization of schools resulting in corporations controlling education for their own purposes.  Wrapping it all up the graphic asks: “When is enough going to be enough for you Americans?”
