OECD education study reveals gender gap and strong disparity



Low pay is a "key obstacle" to encouraging people into teaching, the OECD said in its Education at a Glance 2017 report.

Garcia regrets that teachers do not have "a stage of professional development as re is in or countries", and urges Ministry to negotiate an statute teacher that regulates everything relating to his profession, including salaries and working times.

- Salaries for newly qualified secondary school teachers are below both the European Union and OECD averages.

While overall, university graduates still have much higher employment rates and earn more, engineering and information and computer technology sectors have the highest employment rates, the report says. "It is a key obstacle for attracting young people into teaching". Despite the improvement trend in wages, the average salary of a teacher in Israeli primary education is 69% of the salary of his colleagues in the OECD.

Primary and lower secondary teachers in Latvia also spend a below-average number of hours actually teaching. "Between 2005 and 2015 teachers" statutory salaries decreased in real terms in one-third of the countries and economies with available data'.

But this occurrence may also be skewed by another phenomenon specific to Luxembourg-teacher salaries.

NEET: One in eight (12.6%) of New Zealanders aged 18 to 24 past year were not in employment, education or training (NEET) - worse than Australia (10.9%) but better than the OECD average (15.3%).

Teacher demographics: New Zealand teachers are the third-oldest in the OECD with 36% aged 50 or over compared with the OECD average of 30%.

The report discusses or issues, such as educational expenditure, that, of all variables, is lower in Spain than in average of industrialized countries. In contrast, in Italy and Portugal only 1 per cent of primary teachers are in that age group. For a man, the benefit was $US65,500 compared to the OECD average of $US154,000.

School leadership does not reflect the gender imbalance among teachers.

- The number of young people receiving tertiary (university level) education has been growing constantly. The comprehensive statistical report used data from its 35 developed and 11 partner countries to reveal the current state of education.

In a press note, Ministry of Education gives good data in report and stated that "in beginning of teaching career, Spanish teachers in Elementary school have a salary a 22% superior to OECD average". "These relatively small class sizes push the cost of education up by requiring more teachers for a given number of students".

The proportions of female teachers are about the same as the OECD average across all sectors: 98% female in preschool education, 84% in primary schools, 66% in lower secondary school, 60% in upper secondary and 49% in tertiary education. Annual teaching hours range from less than 700 in Korea, Lithuania and Mexico to nearly 1500 in Germany. The OECD average amount spent by educational institutions per primary student amounted to $8,733 (€7,301). 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.
