Two San Diego Unified school board members want to review
the level of punishment handed down to 31 students at Scripps Ranch High School this week over a video made at school that depicts "twerking," a suggestive manner of dancing.
School board member Scott Barnett said he wanted the twerking incident and the student punishments be discussed in closed session at Tuesday's board meeting. District officials said it would be placed on the agenda for the May 14 meeting.
"I want to make sure I am comfortable that the facts and activity warrant the consequences," Barnett said in a statement.
San Diego Unified board member Kevin Beiser, whose district includes the high school, voiced similar concerns Wednesday.
