Just as the practice of statistics has changed over the past 40 years, so has the approach to statistics education at the school level. This paper reviews past and current contributions and collaborations from three groups that are helping to build the foundations during the school years for a generation of statistically literate young people with potential to continue to study and practice statistics after school. These groups are the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the American Statistical Association, 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 progress through school. This collaboration is intended to prepare students to enter a data-driven world.
