8 year old in kindergarten

Is it ok for an 8 year old to be in kindergarten. They’re not mentally delayed they’re just stubborn.

I think it can be ok.

But a child that young sometimes needs to be motivated. In addition sometimes what can be considered stubbornness, can be a learning disability.  What has led to this question being asked, what has the school done to help ensure this child doesnt continue to fall behind?

Often is this okay in the long run.  Unless there is an academic, special need that is.
