What did your education cost?

Calculate the cost of your schooling at Building Tomorrow. According to the calculator, Illinois public schools in the ’50s and ’60s spent $21,029 to educate me from first through seventh grade.  (I assume that’s adjusted for inflation.) A generation later, my daughter’s California schooling cost more than $50,000 through seventh grade.

Building Tomorrow is raising money for primary schools in Uganda, where it costs $350 to get a student through seventh grade.
