One Response to Public Spending on Education (%GDP) for Jamaica, Barbados and the USA

    There are several questions that i would like answers for. Before i seek those answers though, its clear that Ja’s spending is heading downward. Even though Barbados’ spending experienced a decline albeit that it was a protracted one – Ja’s on the other hand was increasing its spending (at a protracted rate) on education at the same time(it was noticeably at a lower position from where both Barbados & the USstarted). While Barbados’ spending is on the increase, its not significant and the US’s spending seem stagnant as well. Now to my questions: what are the results from the spending increases in Ja,, and is it any different from those now? Is there a difference in the perception among Jamaicans of education when spending is high or low?
