This site

is a growing

collection of resources, organizations, and people working to make data science, stats, and modelling

a part of K-12.

The math we teach needs an update. 

The math we require in our K-12 education system is out of sync with our everyday technology.

of all U.S. high school students  complete any statistics coursework

 

And a lot of people are writing about it:

 

And talking about it:

And implementing it:

Oregon
