http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-34902882 Teachers in England and Scotland have more teaching hours and bigger primary classes than in most other developed countries, according to an OECD annual education report. The think tank says teachers' pay has declined in real terms. The report also shows students in public higher education institutions in England pay the highest tuition fees. But the OECD says high fees are accompanied by the highest levels of student support. The Education at a Glance report compares the costs and characteristics of education systems in industrialised countries, from early years through to university.
