A Comparative Study of Teacher Preparation and Qualifications in Six Nations


This is a collaborative, comparative study on the preparation and qualifications of elementary and secondary teachers in six nations and one autonomous region: China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Thailand, the United States and Hong Kong. The study examined data from each of the seven educational systems on three specific sets of research questions:

1.) What are the Preparation Requirements and Standards to Become a Teacher?

2.) What are the Levels of Qualifications of the Current Teaching Force?

3.) What Proportions of Teachers are Not Qualified in the Subjects They Teach?
