ABOUT US

Data Science for Everyone is a national movement for advancing data literacy in our K-12 education system.

 

Created by the University of Chicago Center for RISC and inspired by economist Steve Levitt's Freakonomics podcast on high school math, this website serves as resource hub for the movement.

A  coalition of 160+ education leaders, policymakers, and industry partners submitted a letter to the incoming administration to make data literacy a national priority. Read the letter here.

 

The data revolution has transformed modern life. It's time we do the same for our education system.

READ THE LETTER

A coalition of more than 160 education leaders, policymakers, academics, and industry partners submitted a letter to the incoming Biden-Harris administration to make data literacy education a national priority in our K-12 schools. The letter included a brief outlining the importance for preparing our students to be data literate, and listed five executive actions the administration could take within Year 1.

The letter was signed by several current and former leaders in K-12 education, including:

  • Arne Duncan (fmr. U.S. Secretary of Education)

  • Jason Zimba (Common Core Lead Mathematics Author)

  • Jo Boaler (Stanford Graduate School of Education)

  • Philip Daro (Common Core Mathematics Author)

  • Richard Atkinson (President Emeritus, University of California System)

  • Steven Levitt (University of Chicago Economics)
