This paper presents a survey of the experience and attitudes of teachers regarding statistics and its teaching in Italian primary schools, and the perception of the importance of statistical culture in children’s education, not only limited to the mathematical sphere, but extended to other disciplines and learning contexts. A snowball sampling procedure was used. The sample involved 300 teachers, covering the NE Italian region of the Veneto. An exploratory analysis was made of the main emerging evidence, particularly teachers’ low level of preparation in the subject and its influence on teaching practice.
