I need your help creating a school age/year/grade translation table
I spend quite a lot of time having to convert, in my head, USian grades, UKian year numbers or AUSian year numbers to the school year structure that I know more intuitively because it is what I experienced as a child/teen in the 70s-90s. I started Infants 1 at age 4, spent my 6th year (age 5) in the US at kindergarten and then back in the UK. I read on LJ about your kids in the US/AUS and hear about my nieces and nephews in the UK now and cannot translate the current year/grade numbering systems into ages or numbers that I understand. I do remember that back in the 70s kids started grade school at age 6 and so have assumed that Grade 1 - age 6, but I am sure that this may be out of date.
So, can you guys help me to fill in this table? I may need to add a column for AUS if it differs from the UK system now.
