The current K12 curriculum is not adequately preparing students for the world they will encounter.

Ninety-percent of the world’s data have been created in the last two years. This new, data-intensive world can be difficult to navigate, and few of us have the skills to do so.

The K12 education system has been slow to recognize the changes this data explosion has made to society, leaving our kids unprepared for this new reality.

Please join the movement, sign the petition, and send a message that yesterday’s math isn’t good enough anymore.
