This article reports on Michael Weitzman's study of the effects of enrolling children younger than 5 in kindergarten. Utilizing NLSY79 and Children of the NLSY79 data, the study finds that children who entered kindergarten younger than their peers were twice as likely to have behavior problems and more than four times as likely to have academic problems as the children who were the average age.
