Fewer Tenn. students may begin school before age 5

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.

If approved, the change would take effect in the 2013-14 school year.
