“Investing” in education

How much do you think they spent on education per pupil in 1895, as a percentage of GDP? We clearly spend many times more now, but the quality of education has gone down. I haven’t ever heard anyone explain how or why pouring more money into education would magically make the quality curve slope back up. It must be one of those things that’s true because it would be Not Very Nice if it wasn’t.
