Connecticut looks at raising age for kids to start kindergarten
from Danbury News Times
As many as 10,000 Connecticut children could be affected by a proposal to adjust the age they can enter kindergarten. Instead of children becoming eligible to enter kindergarten if they celebrate their fifth birthday by Dec. 31, they would have to turn 5 by Sept. 1. State education Commissioner Mark McQuillan has proposed the change and the Connecticut Board of Education may make it part of its legislative package in December that would be sent to the General Assembly. State educators said they believe ages and maturity levels of children in the same classroom vary widely and is at times incompatible with the work they must learn in kindergarten.
