Where Teachers Spend The Most Time In The Classroom
The average day lasts somewhere between 3 and 6 hours in the vast majority of countries across the world but Chile, France and the United States are notable exceptions where teachers spend in excess of 6 hours in the classroom. Those hours certainly add up in Chile where primary school teachers have 1,049 annual hours of instruction time. Australia isn't too far behind with 1,010 while American teachers also put in a huge number of hours each year - 967.
