This has always bugged me. I always thought there should be a month wiggle room on either end. Say the cut-off is December 31. For children born in both December and in January, there should be a choice between when to start school (some December babies might not be ready, but some born in January might be).LMAO! That sounds like something my grandmother would have tried if she were alive today. One of her daughters was born 1 day before the school's deadline and, sure as heck, she put her in school that year. She also had, by that point, 5 kids and wanted 3 of them in school, lol.
