While students rushed to get help for the teacher, a panicked lad leaped out of the second floor window after yelling to his accomplice:
“Run, boy, run. We’ve killed her!”
At that instant, everyone in the school knew who was responsible for the dastardly deed.
The teacher quickly recovered outside in the fresh air.
Later, she sat nodding her total approval as the principal used his two-handed wooden paddle to administer instant, painful justice.
Witnesses said he didn’t administer 1,000 blows, but the guys said it sure felt like it.
