    New York City is considering appealing a judge's decision allowing a fired teacher to return to class.     

    Christine Rubino was fired from P.S. 203 in Brooklyn last June after writing on her Facebook that her students deserved to drown.    

    The the city's Law Department said in a statement Sunday that Rubino's comments "warranted her termination,'' reports the Daily News.     

    A Manhattan state Supreme Court judge last week ruled that Rubino should get her job back because she had an unblemished record.     

    The judge wrote that her rant was "an isolated incident of intemperance.''     

    Rubino has been a teacher for 15 years. She apologized Sunday for her comments, saying "It's something that shouldn't have happened.''
