Yes until 8th grade. Self defense isn’t really the problem. I could defend myself physically just fine. That doesn’t resolve the social dynamics of bullying. Although I guess it doesn’t hurt to know.
Oh yeah you’re right. It would have been easier to just leave the school. (This is why I hate compulsory education; there’s no reason to force traumatized people to stay in a school, near their abusers, when they should be able to leave.)
EDIT: There’s also teaching children to not bully; but the bouregois doesn’t exactly seem interested in treating children well.
