The given column graph illustrates the average class size in primary school and lower
secondary school in six nations in 2006, and compares it with the world average. On the
whole, the class size of primary school in the UK and Denmark was larger than the class size
of lower secondary school, whereas in the other given countries it was smaller.

It is clear that the UK and Denmark had higher number of students in primary school (23
and 21 respectively) than those in secondary school (22 and 19 respectively). A similar trend
was seen in the world average, with 26 and 24 students in primary and secondary classes
respectively. South Korea had the highest number of students in both primary and
secondary classes (nearly 35 in each class). Japan had an average primary class of 26
students, whereas the secondary class size was slightly bigger with 31 average students. The
biggest discrepancy in primary and secondary class size was seen in Mexico, where the
primary class strength was only about 20 students, but secondary class had a little over 30
students. Iceland had the smallest primary and secondary classroom size of 15 and 17
students on an average respectively.

Overall, the teacher-taught ratio was the best in Iceland with the smallest classroom size.
