DATA IS EVERYWHERE.
EVERY K-12 STUDENT
NEEDS TO LEARN IT.
Data Science for Everyone (DS4E) is a growing coalition of individuals and organizations elevating the importance of data literacy and expanding access to K-12 data science education - for every student.
They're in. Are you?
What is it?
Data literacy is a key 21st century skill for nearly every occupation and daily life. It helps us better engage in the world around us and make informed decisions.
It is not just for mathematicians or technical specialists.
So what needs to change?
Data-centric careers are growing by 35% annually but over 60% of companies struggle to find data literate talent.
Students who are data literate must be able to read, analyze, and communicate with data, but the reality is most middle and high schools don’t teach students these valuable skills. We need educational opportunities for every student to reflect the needs of the modern economy.
We all play a role in achieving this:
Schools & Districts | Policymakers | Organizations & Industry | Teachers | Individuals
So what needs
our work is
More than 270 Commitments impacting 3+ million students

The Data Science for Everyone Coalition is the brainchild of Steve Levitt, Freakonomics author and William B. Ogden Distinguished Service Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago.
