Re: Should my DD start school??
Just something to keep in mind:
While the mandatory age for attendance (varies state to state) may be 7 or whatever, once they have started their education become mandatory. So you can't pull them out once they have started like a pp mentioned.
I don't have any school age children but in my school district the cutoff was May 31st and since I had an April birthday, I was one of the youngest in my class and while I could keep up, I always hated being the youngest and the last to do everything so I would keep her home another year so that you can be sure that she is ready.
BTW: I love the idea of pre-K like some mentioned earlier. It sounds like a great compromise.
