Substitute teacher ran 'fight club' in math class, police say

Many were disappointed with the results, but one teacher with Monroe Demonstration School said the walkout was a victory.

Oklahoma Education Association President Alicia Priest said the almost two-week-long teacher walkout should be seen as a "victory" since it or the threat that preceded it helped secure teacher pay raises and millions in new funding for schools.

However, many Oklahoma teachers are upset by the decision.

The head of the state's largest union says it's time to shift their focus to electing pro-education candidates to the state legislature. Little or no headway was made on the teachers' broader demands for a restoration of prior education funding cuts, to be paid for by a rollback of the tax cuts that the GOP has regularly enacted in this deep-red state. "We are proud of what we have accomplished, but truthfully there's no one left to negotiate with in the statehouse", said Ed Allen, president of the Oklahoma City American Federation of Teachers.

Millcreek Township School District handed out mini baseball bats to 500 teachers after they attended a day of training on how to respond to school shootings.

"You'll be able to walk away with the medication you need", said Kevin Supple, the chief financial officer with the Francis Howell School District. The "constant bombardment of news from Twitter, Instagram, texts, information, ideas - that's a lot for developing brains to process", she said.

"They've been out for two weeks, and it's time for them to get back to school".

Authorities discovered the high school had known about the "fight club" since October 10 after cell phone videos of the fights began spreading around campus.

Knight is not employed by the Polk County School Board, but is employed by Kelly Educational Staffing as a substitute teacher. The $450 million tax package increased taxes on cigarettes, fuel and oil and gas production and aimed to give teachers a roughly $6,100 raise, as well as raises for school support staff and state employees. They also pressured Gov. Mary Fallin (R) to veto a repeal on a tax on hotel and motel stays, which could have brought in additional state funding, but the governor signed the legislation anyway. "I didn't think it was ok, I didn't know what else to do".

By the end of the first week, the Senate approved two revenue-raising measures that pumped more money into education. Republican leaders remained steadfast throughout the walkout that they would not hear the capital gains exemptions repeal bill. They had been talking about the Amazon and ball and dice, but not really moving on it.

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