Getting it Right: Using Implementation Research to Improve Outcomes in Early Care and Education

The Foundation for Child Development has released a brief with research (or lack thereof) on Early Care and Education programs. The brief gets into quality in the workforce, ways to improve the learning space in Pre-Kindergarten classrooms, building equity into the curriculum, and implementing research to develop high quality programs for both early learners and ECE educators. See excerpt below:
