United States district arms school teachers with baseball bats

Outside court, Ryan Fish, 23, denied having any involvement to an alleged fight club where he was a substitute teacher.

A former substitute teacher was arrested and charged Thursday for starting a "fight club" in his classroom at a CT high school.

Police said cellphone video shows Fish encouraging the students and moving items out of the way so the teenagers could continue fighting. However, upon learning just how much trouble he was in, he appeared remorseful.

"It helps build a stronger bond because they realize I'm from here and I understand how our community works", she said.

"The truth is, I'm an idiot and wanted to befriend them", Fish, who was 22 at the time of the incident, told police.

"I was nearly on the verge of tears yesterday really", said Ashtyn Henry, a Claremore parent.

Superintendent Jeremy Siebert said they now are doing everything they can to make sure their schools are secure, but with only one School Resource Officer for the district, he thinks select teachers carrying firearms is the best option. He added that the fight ended when victim 3 wound up throwing up in a trash can, but when victim 3 was done throwing up Fish attempted to restart the fight by saying, "Round two", but it didn't restart because the bell rang.

Hansen stressed his findings only indicate states in which conditions are ripe for teacher action, but whether or not strikes actually occur will hinge on a variety of factors, including "current tax and school finance policies, partisan divides, union influence and many other state-level features". Eventually the concerns made their way up to the superintendent, who promptly dismissed Fish.


The trouble happened before lunch, Kailyn said, on a day when her regular teacher was sick.

He was arrested Thursday and charged with four counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, two counts of risk of injury to a minor and one count of breach of peace. Fish was sacked later in the day.

A Philadelphia native who has poor cholesterol, likes eating quiche for dinner, and gets a real charge out of yelling at tv commercials. "I am so sorry because I'll be totally honest, I was trying to reach the kids", Fish told WVIT.

Kentucky teachers rallied at the capitol Friday, closing schools in the state's largest district. She was able to be an active participant in the day to day business of the Senate, and did a great job assisting during a tremendously hectic week.

The former substitute initially said he was unaware of most fights, or considered them "horse play".

Why did you think this was ok to let these kids to fight in class?

This is Rosales' 12th year teaching, and third year teaching in Keyes Union School District, she said, which is the same district she attended grades K-8. "I didn't have the training to know what was going on". He said that he thought they were being "rambunctious". He said that the secretary had accepted his demand and ordered the officers concerned to make a committee for looking into matter and take action against the responsible officers through Peeda Act within 15 days.
