In which European country is the total amount of annual taught time for the 2012/13 school year highest? How many hours do students spend on specific subjects, such as mathematics or natural sciences?
A new Eurydice publication on recommended annual taught time during compulsory education gives quick answers to these questions. More precisely, the publication contains annually updated facts and figures on the amount of time allocated to core subjects by grade/stage in full-time compulsory education. Information in the publication is divided into the amount of time allocated to individual subjects, such as literacy learning, mathematics, or physical education and also by country. The report also covers the number of taught days and weeks per year, as well as the number and length of the class periods.
The full report can be downloaded from the facts and figures area of the Eurydice http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/education/eurydice/index_en.php network website: Recommended annual taught time in full-time compulsory education in Europe http://eacea.ec.europa.eu/education/eurydice/documents/facts_and_figures/taught_time_EN.pdf
