I'm interested in discovering how many hours of contact math educators have with their students each week. I've done some research and gotten some averages by country, but I can't find enough data (distributions) to determine if my classroom time is significantly below average.
I realize than many countries (and states in the US) have determined a minimum number of annual hours of "instruction"; however, this often includes lunch breaks, study halls, and other time that is not specifically used for instruction.
What is an overview of general guidelines as to how many contact hours I should have with my students? How many hours do you have and how does it work?
