High School vs 7th Grade

Reader comment on item: Islamists Police the Classroom [at the University of South Florida]

In the post, you mentioned "the high school level" and then equated it with 7th grade. Not to put too fine a point on it, but high school in the US starts in 9th or 10th grade, when kids are typically 14 -16 years old,a huge difference (in terms of cognitive ability, world awareness, etc.) from their younger, 11-12-year old schoolmates in 7th grade...On the other hand, perhaps the propagandizing of the 7th graders is even more sinister that trying it with high schoolers....
