Twin Rivers RX School District wants to allow armed teachers

Ryan Avery Fish, 23, was arrested on Thursday for supervising a "fight club" at the school he taught in.

A former substitute math teacher at a high school in CT is facing charges after allegedly encouraging boys to fight in his class during school hours, according to state police and ABC affiliate WTNH-TV in New Haven.

As stated by police, there are videos where Fish can be seen moving garbage cans to make space for students to fight, TIME reports.

In the arrest warrant, Fish told police he didn't set up the fights but he would watch them, and said: "I will admit that I did at one point egg them on".

The student also told police that Fish told his class that he had smoked marijuana and tried other drugs, and that he let students draw pictures of male body parts on the board, the warrant says. However, upon learning just how much trouble he was in, he appeared remorseful.

He also mentioned, "the truth is I'm an idiot and wanted to befriend them".

"When the first few schools started going back I was really upset and didn't want them to give up", said Henry.

"They come from the same background I came from, and if they don't want to continue in that same system I want to help them know that there are options", she said.

Eight police officers from Argentina are out of work after they blamed mice for the disappearance of a massive stash of marijuana. Police say the two adults are in custody while the child was sent back to the care of his mother as investigations continue.

Not surprisingly, students with smartphones recorded numerous fights and then posted them to social media, which obviously brought plenty of attention to Fish's freakish "teaching" style. 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. Teachers applauded the passage of millions of dollars in new education funding, but they are also returning to their classrooms without the full raises or classroom funding they demanded.

Sterk, who was hired as a Spokane police officer for Expo '74, said he would have never dreamed back then that he would be researching school shootings to suggest safety measures to include locking classroom doors. He faces charges of reckless endangerment and risk of injury to a minor for what some are calling a "fight club".

Ryan Avery Fish, 23, was sacked on October 10 but the investigation began in December after a student reported physical and mental trauma.

The think tank's study, by the Brookings Brown Center on Education Policy, looked at recent teacher strikes and protests and found common causes that may lead to similar teacher-led action in other states.

Fish had initiated that fight by counting to three, the 14-year-old told police.

The sergeant asked Levesque to provide Montville police with all cellphone videos and electronic data, such as emails, the school had about the fights, but the superintendent, citing school policy, declined to do so without a search warrant, police said. He told deputies he "lost his cool" and doesn't know if he blacked out during the incident but that all he remembers were the kids pulling him off of the student.

Fish was reportedly released from jail Thursday after posting $75,000 bond. I'll be totally honest with you, I was just trying to reach the kids. They said lawmakers just needed to raise another $50 million in revenue in order to call off the walkout.
