Could 'redshirting' become a thing of the past in Illinois?
from Education Week
A bill under consideration in Illinois would effectively end academic redshirting in the state. The practice of holding a child out of kindergarten for a year to give the child an advantage over his or her peers is popular among some parents. Others argue that it simply allows a child who isn't ready either academically or socially to mature and perform better.
