5. there is no benefit

a given individual child may not be "ready" and may benefit but as a general practice there is none. the mention here that "some research" is media bs. research shows No academic or social advantage for older children. Just as there is No "mozart effect."

my 26 lb sept. 8 2007 daughter will start K this fall and do as well longterm as her six-year-old classmates.
