This is reason enough to show that in situations like this, the victim 's feelings should be considered more than the bully 's because the bully chose to intentionally hurt feelings and therefore should be punished.

This then leads to the student developing a low self-esteem. Expulsion of the teacher bully can result in the child not dreading the class he/she teaches, higher grades in that class and sometimes others, and a higher self esteem that can make the child feel like they can succeed at whatever he/she puts their mind
