Change the age a child starts Kindergarden

A child has to wait until they turn 5 y.o before they start school in the State of Florida. Why not allow the child to start school providing that they turn 5 by Dec. 31 of the school year. Some children have to wait until closer to their 6th birthday before they start school; keeping them back developmentally. No child should be kept behind because of their age.
