NEW YORK (PIX11)– The department of education came close to firing this teacher after she reportedly tried to teach an 8-year-old class bully a lesson.

A report in The New York Post says P.S. 191 teacher Tamu Francis was so fed up with the kid’s behavior, she had him stand in front of the class, and urged his latest victim to give him a taste of his own medicine.

The boy slugged him, and the bully burst into tears.

The department decided to fine Francis $10,000 instead of firing her, because of her spotless, 13-year record as a teacher.
