Interesting article. I've read a lot about the pros and cons of starting kinder early or late because (a) I am a kindergarten teacher and (b) both my children have birthdays very close to the cut off date.

I'd like to add that there is a LOT of cultural issues here. Changing school entry because of SPORT? That's not heard of here in Australia, but then, we don't have those sports scholarships to university. Finland don't start their children in school until they are 7 and they always top the OECD lists.
