Comparative Indicators of Education in the United States and Other G8 Countries: 2004 - This document reports 23 education indicators for the G8 nations – Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Russian Federation, the U.K. and the United States. Spanning from preprimary to postsecondary education and the larger context of education, the indicators run from early childhood enrollment to secondary students’ engagement in reading to higher education enrollment and the earnings gained from higher levels of education. The appendix provides a two-page profile of the structure of each nation’s education system. The report notes that the average number of hours secondary school teachers work during a year varies from 557 in Japan to 1,127 in the United States. (Anindita Sen, Lisette A. Partelow and David C.
