Whose Mistake Was It Anyway

A school of good students and good teachers
It was running with good name and fame
Once but turned fateful with some bad features
When a student stole and got a bad name
Angry teacher beat him nicely on shame
Just to make him right to be a good boy
But soon a report filed against the dame
That she got expelled for beating the boy
So, whose mistake was it? tell me, teacher or boy?
