The main objective of this chapter is to discuss the relevance and feasibility of international comparative indicators on teachers. Three rationales for the selection of teacher indicators are described. Data availability and interpretation problems due to lack of standard definitions appear to be important problems in international comparisons. Some illustrative findings on teaching time, teacher education, teacher compensation, and teacher characteristics are presented.
