UIS launches the 2013 Education Survey



The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) has launched its annual survey on education to more than 150 UNESCO Member States and territories.
The new questionnaire collects information on national policies for annual intended instructional time at each grade in pre-primary, primary and general secondary education. It includes items on the number of days and hours that students are meant to be learning and the allocation of instructional time by subject matter according to current curricular policies.
The questionnaire has been developed in collaboration with the UNESCO International Bureau of Education (UNESCO-IBE) and will provide cross-nationally comparable data to inform debates on educational quality.
