  1. This chart is a sad commentary on America. Our country is based on the idea that a good education is a right, not a privilege. In the last two decades, a good education is only open to those who have the wherewithal to afford a private school. Combine that with the elimination of art, music, and many extra-curicular activities in public schools, and America's future is in jeopardy.
