The imp has a spelling test, today (if they don't run out of time--it's a Friday thing, but Friday's cancelled). He's in kindergarten, if y'all remember. He's also reading fairly well.
He is not being bullied. At all.
Not like this poor little five-year-old girl in Pascagoula, Mississippi, who was kicked in the face repeatedly while playing on the slide (though the school somehow thinks she beat her own face misshapen, and blacked her own eyes because they didn't see it happen).
And definitely not like this poor twelve-year-old boy who was hospitalized with a skull fracture (and leaking spinal fluid) by another boy two years older and three times bigger.
There's a point where kids ought to be taught to stand up to bullies, and then there's a point where the bullies need to be forcibly removed from interacting with other children. Unfortunately, most public schools are beyond unwilling to do anything but close their eyes and blame the victim.
Honestly, were I either of those children's parent, I'd be yanking my kid out of the schools, homeschooling them, and suing the pants off of the district.
