It depends on size, US is much larger then Finland or Sweden so they have the time to nourish every kid's education, but it's also important for every child to be educated so the country isn't taken advantage of the other nations. China pumps out 6 million college graduates a year, that almost the amount of Sweden's entire population

Finland has actualy almost 50 percent less GDP per capita than the US. Yet they have enough money to afford such education.

it's a lot of factors, but the American mentality is that if we throw money at a problem it will be solved. Meanwhile, everyone and their mother is taking a cut. Another thing is what we don't value education as highly as Finland and Sweden because that's technically their export. Kids gets educated, they get secure paying jobs, pay taxes back, and repeat. An educated child is the best investment a country can do.
