Abstract: 

This paper is an attempt to suggest features of future statistics education in the light of the emerging paradigms of science, education and mathematics. The paper consists of three sections; an introduction clarifying the context and limitations of the present paper, an explanation of the included concepts and the conclusions about some features of the future statistics education in the light of the studied emerging paradigms. These features included the integration of statistics education through an "applied" approach to problems, rejecting linearity, concentrating on conceptual frameworks and "conditional prediction", and emphasizing the study of probability and the way to deal with the results of statistical analyses.
