Okay, so the happy Mayday thread...

…got me thinking on just how much time the average Irishman spends in school.
So I figured, the LEAST amount of time he could spend would be 11 years, with an average of four months holidays.
The MOST, including preschool and college, is 23 or 24 years with an average of 4 and a half months holidays.
The AVERAGE, so far as I can work it out is 19 or 20 years with an average of 5 months holidays.

So then I wondered how much of their lives people in other countries spend in school.


Minimum 13. There is no maximum.

Okay, there’s no REAL maximum here, but that’s the amount of time a person would take if they did the longest Uni course and did a PhD or Masters afterwords.
