7.5

hours are spent each week on courses, clubs, workshops and lessons with tutors by primary- and secondary-school students who are involved in supplementary education.

This is slightly more time than they spend walking outside (7.2 hours per week).

Children spend 6.4 hours per week sitting in front of computers (although during this time they may be pursing education in addition to playing games or communicating on social media). TV and reading each take up the same amount of time (5.6 hours).

This data comes from a questionnaire given to parents whose children attend extracurricular activities. The qeustionnaire was part of a survey carried out by HSE in cooperation with the Levada Center as part of the Higher School of Economics’ Monitoring Economics of Education

These data are contained in a report by Sergey Kosaretsky, Director of the HSE Institute of Education; Boris Kupriyanov, senior research fellow at the Institute; and Darya Filippova, an analyst at the Institute. The results of the study were presented at a seminar held by the Institute of Education called ‘Current Research and Development in the Field of Education’.
