When it comes to national spending, the amount allotted to education can be the source of heated debates. Top Education Degrees has created an infographic showing just how much we’re spending, and what it compares to. Federal, state and local governments spend a lot of money every year on education.

According to the infographic, $1.06 trillion tax dollars are spent on education, including primary, secondary and higher education. This infographic shows the proportion of federal, state and local government spending in 2014.
