Why are so many toys today labeled "educational"? How could parents be more empowered to size up toys and choose the ones that will be best for their children's play and learning? In honor of holiday shopping, Early Education Initiative Director Lisa Guernsey and Claire Green, President of Parents' Choice, discuss trends in children's toys.
This podcast also includes our Senior Policy Analyst Laura Bornfreund who reviews new data on how many children are held back in school, a follow-up to her podcast from last month. Maggie Severns hosts.
