School Days Around the World Infographic

The School Days Around the World Infographic looks at the differences between elementary/primary education systems across the globe. A sample of countries across Europe,Asia and Africa has been taken in order to compare aspects such as school starting times, the age children begin attending school and national curriculum subjects alongside an interesting, unique fact about regular school life in those countries.

The countries sampled in the School Days Around the World Infographic include the UK, Finland, France, Switzerland, China, South Korea, Brazil and Ghana. It has been found that the duration of an average school day also varies quite a bit depending on the country.

From looking at the School Days Around the World Infographic one can really see how despite education being a universal system, each country provides an entirely unique experience to its pupils, some being better than others, which might help us figure out what’s best for children all over the world.

    For Switzerland this is wrong. Children begin school at age 4 and the day lasts 6 hours. From 08:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. then 2 hours of lunch break and finally from 1:30 p.m. to 04:00 p.m. And we have Wednesday afternoon off as Saturday and Sunday.
