Lawmakers in Tennessee's House have approved legislation that moves up the age cut-off date from Sept. 30 to Aug. 15 to enroll in kindergarten and prekindergarten. Under the bill, there would be fewer 4-year-old students in kindergarten classrooms. Parents who would like their children to enroll before the new date would have to submit their children to a test to ensure they are prepared. If approved, the change would take effect in the 2013-14 school year.
