    What is your question about your assignment?

  • Culture and Diversity -

    I am having a hard time coming up with three demographic changes that are reflected in the committee. I was told to use a job or organization i work or volunteer in. I work at a day care and am having a hard time coming up with 3 changes.

  • Culture and Diversity -

    No one here has any knowledge of the day care facility where you work, but consider these:

    Do you have more children whose first language is not English? How will this affect the daily operation of the day care?

    Do you have more children whose first language seems to be a mix of English and another language? If you have these children, do their parents speak and understand English? How will this affect the daily operation of the day care?

    What else can you think of?

  • Culture and Diversity -

    I decided to not only focus on the children and parents but worker themselves, because Americans are getting older so we have workers that are a lot older. I also chose education level because some of the parents are going back to school and bringing their children to day care so that they can better themselves. We do have children of different races which is also becoming greater in the U.S.

    Excellent!
