K-12 Data Science and Statistics Education: the View from California
For decades now, statistics educators have worked to achieve wide-spread statistical literacy. And now, well before the task is accomplished, along comes Data Science Education. I’ll explain why, from my perspective, this term is more than just a new label for an old thing, describe updates to the American Statistical Association’s Guidelines for Assessment and Instruction in Statistics Education (GAISE) Pre-K-12 report, and give a brief overview of a high school data science course that I helped design and propagate. I’ll also discuss currents in California pushing back against data science (and statistics) education.
