Chart: Taxpayers' $50 Tab For Federal K-12 Education

A taxpayer earning $34,000 paid $38 towards compensatory education for poor children (ie, Title I) in 2009, according to this report (Your 2009 Tax Receipt).  Add $11 more for Head Start and you're almost at $50 whole dollars.

NB the tax rules and spending dollars are somewhat different each year.

And? The graphic also shows that we paid $500 for war and its effects (military personnel and veterans' benefits). I'd rather pay $50 for low income students than $2 on Amtrak. People can pay for their own train rides, thank you very much.
