I'm not sure when it changed to mid year cut off (and at an earlier age) but it certainly confuses all my friends who's kids are starting kindy/preschool etc now as its so different to our experience with entering schooling.

Finland are considered the best because they top the OECD rankings.
Australia needs to have a massive cultural shift to get even close to what's happening in these countries.
ETA there are some amazing public schools challenging the way we educate our kids. A good friend in Melbourne chose a school which broke the classes into disciplines not years so there were year 1s in the same class as year 6s for many subjects. I've no idea how it worked but the school in the main produced very strong academic results.
