SAN DIEGO (May 2, 2013)--Dozens of students at Scripps Ranch High School in San Diego were suspended for making a suggestive "twerking" dance video and might not be able to attend prom or walk the stage during commencement ceremonies.
School board member Kevin Beiser says he was told that 31 students were suspended while other reports indicated 33 students were suspended this week, including the student who shot the video.
The video, which was shot and edited on school property, shows students doing the hip-shaking moves of twerking.
Lyston McNear, 17, says he was suspended for coming up with the original idea for the video.
He says it took months to create and nobody seemed offended.
