But He Has a Summer Birthday: The Kindergarten Entrance Age Dilemma.
Crosser, Sandra
Early Childhood News, v9 n2 p43,47-48 Mar-Apr 1997
Notes that the practice of delaying school entrance for summer-born children, especially boys, to give them some academic advantage, is not substantiated by sufficient research. Describes a subsequent study indicating higher achievement for children held-out than those entering school on time. Argues for more research and consideration of the individual child's academic, physical, social, and emotional development. (SD)
