OECD education study reveals gender gap and strong disparity

OECD education study reveals gender gap and strong disparity

For a teacher with typical qualifications and 15 years' experience, and accounting for inflation, salaries were worth 12 per cent less in 2015 than in 2005 in England and six per cent less in Scotland, the report says.

When comparing different countries, teachers with the maximum qualifications at the top of their salary scale earn: less than USD $25 000 (AUD $31,175) in the Czech Republic, Lithuania and the Slovak Republic; USD $75 000 (AUD $93 525) or more in Austria, the French Community of Belgium, Germany and Korea; more than USD $95 000 (AUD $118,465) in Switzerland; and, more than USD $135 000 (AUD $168 345) in Luxembourg.

More than half of primary, lower secondary and upper secondary teachers are between the ages of 30 and 49.

"If we take as a reference maximum wages to which you can aspire to throughout teaching career, difference of Spain with OECD average is shortened, but remains higher at all stages of education", added Ministry.

'However gender parity improves at higher levels of education - while 97 per cent of teachers at the pre-primary level are women, they make up 43 per cent at the tertiary level, ' the report reads.

Women in Israel are more likely to enroll in higher education, making up 57% of entrants, compared to the OECD average of 54%.

The most popular college and university programs are business, administration and law - but all the jobs are in engineering and information technology, says a new worldwide report on education.

Teacher pay: Primary teachers after 15 years' service earned nearly exactly the same in 2015 ($59,259 at today's exchange rate) as the OECD average ($59,152), but much less than in Australia ($81,918).

"He's 17 years old, he's a City player, he grew up in the academy, he loves the club, he's a City fan and for us he's a gift". The upcoming duel will open the account of the face-to-face encounters of the Feyenoord-Manchester City confrontation.

The teachers unions put in quarantine se figures, as well as data of report in which he says that teachers in Spain work less hours than average.

But New Zealand domestic students also paid a relatively high share of the costs of their tertiary education.

However, it should be noted that Israeli teachers work significantly fewer hours than their OECD counterparts.

They also have, on average, faster pay increases after 15 years in the classroom than their worldwide counterparts, with salary bumps of more than $18,000 for US teachers versus roughly $12,000 for the OECD average.

In this area, Luxembourg bucks the trend in other OECD countries, where primary school teachers earn 21% less and secondary teachers between 10 and 14% less. Annual teaching hours range from less than 700 in Korea, Lithuania and Mexico to nearly 1500 in Germany.

Ireland has 20 students per staff member at this level, compared to the OECD average of 16 - the third highest out of 23 countries surveyed. That time is split between school hours, "which are well above OECD and european average", and hour to prepare lessons or correct papers and exams.
