EAST NEW YORK - A fight at an East New York school that was captured on video and posted on YouTube has many parents worried.

The Department of Education says it is talking with I.S. 218 parents to address any concerns while Councilman Charles Barron suggests the lot behind the school be used for recreation instead of teacher parking, giving the kids an outlet to release "pent-up emotions."

The school's principal declined to speak about the issue with News 12.
