The child was 7 which means he was likely in first grade.
Was he slow?
7 is second grade round here. Kindergarten 5, first 6, etc...
Did I miss something about why this kid would have been held back a year?

There were plenty of kids who turned 7 years old towards the end of the school year in 1st grade. My son will be 7 through most of 2nd grade and then 8 for the last couple of months of 2nd grade. Not unheard of.

The problem is bullying is never going to stop. It's just human nature.
Rape is also part of human nature. That doesn't mean we should be saying "Well, it's never going to stop because it's just who we are."
We should be trying to find a way to stop it.
