Education funding worldwide

Those of us who work in the higher education system have heard a lot about the lack of funding from the government for higher education. Check out this report from the Colorado Department of Education if you want to see how the schools here stack up to their public counterparts in other states. But it turns out overall that the United States does the best at funding education in the world. According to the press release "its [the US] public education budget is close to that of all governments in the six regions combined: the Arab States, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, South and West Asia and sub-Saharan Africa."

Want to read the report? You can view a pdf copy on the UNESCO web site.
