Abstract

Just as the practice of statistics has changed over the past 40 years, so has the approach to statisticseducation at the school level. This paper reviews past and current contributions and collaborationsfrom three groups that are helping to build the foundations during the school years for a generationof statistically literate young people with potential to continue to study and practice statistics afterschool. These groups are the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the American StatisticalAssociation, and academics conducting research at the school level. The groups have in the past,and continue, to collaborate and facilitate the statistical experiences students have as they progressthrough school. This collaboration is intended to prepare students to enter a data-driven world.
