California Penal Code 273(d) defines child abuse as the infliction of any “cruel or inhuman corporal punishment or an injury resulting in a traumatic condition.” Circumstances matter. It depends on a lot of factors that you don't list: prior history of beating; prior convictions; use of alcohol or drugs, number and severity of bruises, age of the child, circumstances of the beating, etc. The teacher did the right thing. It is up to the criminal justice system to figure out the correct punishment, if any.
