Model of the Moment Nichelle, Hispanic Candi, and Emerald
While half asleep and half listening to a news story on CNN this morning, I heard TJ Holmes mention the requirement for dolls in day care facilities to represent at least three ethnicities. After fully waking up, and remembering that I heard a doll-related story, I Googled: daycare doll diversity.
The mandates, which are multiple and included on a 98-page document, affect day care facilities in Colorado. Creating a doll population that reflects a minimum of three ethnicities is just one of the mandates. Gaining permission from a child's doctor to provide whole milk for the child is another (huh?). Limiting computer time to 20 minutes per day and regulating day care providers' attire are other proposed mandates. Additional rules for Colorado child care providers are included in this story.
What are your thoughts?
