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
