In percentage terms, the increase in private schools with general education was 2% higher (289 persons) than in public schools with general education of 0.4% (414 persons). Overall, about 86% of all teachers (94,965 people) in the last school year were employed in private general education schools and nearly 14% (15,061 people).

The percentage of women in general public schools was around 74% (70,499 people). In private schools, this is significantly lower at around 67% (10,022 people). The highest percentage of women is found in public and private schools of general education of primary and secondary schools (85.7 and 75.1%) and FFS (80.5 and 72.3%). Women constitute the lowest percentage in public schools in special type schools with 60.5% and in elementary schools with 62.2%. Among private schools, the percentage of women was the lowest with 62.9% in free Waldorf schools and 58.9% in elementary schools. The proportion of women in schools from both types of providers remained almost unchanged from the previous year.

Most general public school teachers taught with 31,748 people in primary and secondary schools (33.4%) and with 24,783 people in elementary schools (26.1%). In private general schools, on the other hand, the majority of teachers taught in the SBB (5,412 people or 35.9%) and in grammar schools (3,872 people or 25.7%). It should be noted that after the free Waldorf schools, which are only privately run, the percentage of private school teachers in the SBB school type is relatively high with 35.8%, corresponding to their share of the number of students. In other types of schools, private schools tend to play an integrative role with respect to the public offer in terms of the number of teachers.

In public public schools, just under half (44.5%) of teachers (42,302 people) had a full teaching assignment in the 2019/20 school year. This is 0.4% fewer teachers than the previous year. 35,571 teachers worked at least half of the normal compulsory hours. An increase of 1.9% was recorded here, with their share reaching 37.5%. The number of other teachers decreased by about 0.4% to 17,092 people (18%). This means that 55.5% of all general public school teachers worked part-time or as other employees. In private general education schools, these employees made up a higher percentage of 60.9% (9,166 people). For the first time, the number of part-time teachers (5,985 persons or 39.7%) exceeded the number of full-time teachers (5,895 persons or 39.1%) in private schools providing general education. The number of full-time teachers therefore decreased by 0.9% compared to the previous year.
