ABC and 123: They’re the basics of early childhood education, but the way kids learn these is up for debate.
In the first half of Tuesday's Up to Date, we’ll talk with Tyler Nottberg, president and CEO of U.S. Engineering, Erin Brower, public policy director at the Partnership for Children, and the Mid-America Regional Council's Jim Caccamo about the latest innovations and debates in early learning and explore why the strength of these programs ties in to developing a strong economy.
