Education: a topic so broad that you can get nearly anyone into a heated debate about some aspect of it. At Edudemic, we talk a lot about innovation in education, trends, and technology. That means we either don’t discuss or gloss over a large number of relevant and important discussions about pedagogy, money, access, and more. The handy infographic below offers a snapshot of education in the US. Take a look and you’ll see a number of statistics about graduation rate, cost, and lots of other things.
