No, if he hits her the fact that she hit first won't matter. There is still a double standard even at that age. Have you contacted the school? If they won't do anything call the school board.

No, never... I would tell him to keep reporting it to the teachers. If it continues and the teachers do nothing to stop her, I would go in and personally attend a meeting with my child, the teacher, the principle, and the guidance counselor. I would demand that they all attend this meeting so we could address this issue properly.
Telling him to hit her, is a bad idea! He will get in trouble both now, and in the long run...Whether she started it or not, he will be more severely punished just because he is the male. Its never OK for anyone to hit another... but we were all raised to believe its worse for a male to hit a female.
