The Washington Monthly – Ten Miles Square – Everyone Should Learn Statistics


I agree with the great value of statistics and lack of understanding of it.

statistics isn’t part of the standard curriculum schools require students to complete in order to get a high school or college diploma. Math education is still largely interpreted as a progression through Algebra and Geometry to Calculus. And I’m not against working harder to improve math education. But in terms of things you really need in order to make your way in modern society, statistics is way, way up there, above a lot of things that are currently lodged in the curriculum.
