[Author Surname Year Published]


Rasell and Mishel compare US spending with the spending of other industrialized nations. Though they do discuss detailed percentages, dollar amounts rarely are mentioned, and they fail to mention the current US spending. Furthermore, they do not explain why the lower percentage of spending on education is a bad thing, or how the US education system is compared to those of the other industrialized nations. [Rasell and Mishel n.d.]
