Comment: They should check the Southern Hemisphere data too (Score 1) 276

It would be interesting to see the corresponding data from developed Southern Hemisphere nations (e.g., Australia, New Zealand, Argentina). Are underachieving children in such countries more likely to have been born in June-August (the cold months) or in January-March (the same as in the US)? And how does the education level of the mothers correlate with this?
