10. The Varsity Twerk Team Gets Justice
Like Tamagotchis, razor scooters and cell phones before it, twerking became a problem for school administrators after 31 students at Scripps Ranch High in San Diego used school property to film their “Awesome Twerking Video” back in May. Parents were outraged and suspensions were doled out, but by the fall, the incident had been expunged from the students’ records. “After further review, a mutual agreement has been reached that is in the best interest of the students and the district. The parents, students, school and district are ready to move beyond this incident and focus on the upcoming school year,” a spokeswoman for the district said. See? It’s even difficult for educators to resist the power of the twerk.
