Fish, who was a substitute at Montville High in Montville, CT, allowed students to turn his classroom into a "fight club" of sorts, encouraging violent confrontations between students during class.

Fish was sacked from Montville High School on October 10 after cellphone videos surfaced of students fighting each other in his math class, according to the Hartford Courant. During their probe, the learned that fights between four boys, ages 14 to 16, transpired under Fish's supervision, police said.

I also want to point out that when so many people were stopping by the office to speak on behalf of our public schools, it was especially nice to have my wife, a life-long teacher, come to the Capitol and join me in speaking to our visitors. I'm immature. I would say I feel awful about what happened to be honest.

"It's kind of been evolving since then and I mean I know there are some other schools out there in Missouri that's already done this so we're just trying to do what we can to protect our students and provide the best education environment as possible", said Seibert. The warrant also says students recorded video clips on their phones and shared them on social media. 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. "I want teachers and students to say, 'What did we learn?" Eventually the concerns made their way up to the superintendent, who promptly dismissed Fish. "These strikes appeared to me to be full force strikes with open hands", an officer said in the police report of what can be seen on the video.

Fish was charged with four counts of second-degree reckless endangerment, two counts of risk of injury, and one count of breach of peace, according to the Hartford Courant. He also said where he grew up in the country, "boys do stuff like that".




"We compliment the school district staff who worked hand-in-hand with us to hold Mr. Knight accountable for his conduct" said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd. "I thought, 'These young kids are just being rambunctious.' I thought they just needed an out".

Whatever happens, a walkout would be a tremendously bad idea, one that undercuts new-found financial support from the taxpayers of the unified school district and undoes the positive feelings teachers now enjoy. "As a public-school teacher for the past five years, I can attest to the importance of small class sizes and discipline of instruction". He was sacked that day, she told police.

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

I left Pauls Valley (Wednesday) morning to try to find out the answer to the greatest threat to the new funding source brought about by HB1010xx, the Tom Coburn Tax Repeal. "Part of the formula now, is to fight back, and so I think the bats that were provided for the staff were symbolic of that". "I didn't have the training to know what was going on".

He pleaded not guilty to all charges in state court in Norwich, Connecticut, on Thursday.
