Fayette County pre-school teacher Heather Blankenship has noticed a trend among some of her young pupils who are born during the summer months. "A large majority of my students with summer birthdays struggle the first several months of pre-K," Blankenship reported. "A few (struggle) the entire year." Blankenship is among a number of local educators and parents who are in support of a bill that would change age guidelines for children to start pre-school and kindergarten.
