‘Big data’ classes a big hit in California high schools


About 30 high schools in California have started offering data science classes for juniors and seniors, in some cases as an alternative to Algebra 2.
The class has been popular with students. In addition to the class having a low attrition rate, 82 percent of students said they’d recommend it to a friend.

I'm not sure about replacing Algebra 2(!?), but it's great to see students getting exposure to these topics earlier.
