A research agenda for home-based child care: Executive summary


To build the evidence base on HBCC availability and quality, the Home-Based Child Care Supply and Quality (HBCCSQ) project, funded by the Office of Planning, Research, and Evaluation (OPRE) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), developed an equity-focused research—or learning—agenda. The goal of an equity-focused research agenda is to use research to help ensure everyone, especially people from historically excluded and/or marginalized communities, has fair and equitable access to resources and opportunities and the capacity to take advantage of them. An equity-focused research agenda asks questions and pursues research that helps uncover how historical or current policies and prejudice might create roadblocks, or inequities, for particular groups and what might be needed to address these inequities and level the field of opportunity for those groups.
