Policy Change Making Data Science “The New Basic”

States and districts across the country are rethinking how we connect what kids learn in school to the skills they really need. From redesigning math pathways, to using stimulus funding to boost Career & Technical Education, data science is at the core of many of these efforts. Join this panel to discuss the models for change we’re seeing in states and districts like Virginia, Nebraska, and San Diego Unified to make data science skills as fundamental as reading and writing.
