Brad Ferro, 23, a teacher at North Queens Community High School in Flushing, was caught by MTV cameras slugging Polizzi in the face inside a Seaside Heights bar on Aug. 19.
The beefy brute from Long Island was charged with simple assault, prompting education officials to reassign him to a “rubber room” last month.
A Department of Education spokeswoman said Tuesday that Ferro’s firing is imminent.
“The department is in the process of taking termination action,” the spokeswoman said.
Ferro’s dad told the Daily News last month his son was provoked.
“A woman who works for them instigated my son into doing something very stupid,” Dan Ferro said. “When you get a bunch of people in a situation with alcohol and instigate, someone’s going to do something stupid, and that’s obviously what MTV wants.”
