US Education Spending vs. Performance

The graphic below, from the University of Southern California,  provides a nice comparison of US spending and academic performance as compared to other countries.

A quick social studies teacher note: this figure shows total annual spending and not percentage of GDP or spending in relation to population, etc. Although the US spends way more than Finland I would be interested to see what this looks like in comparison to GDP or spending per pupil.
