BROWNSVILLE, Pa. - The American Civil Liberties Union and the National Coalition Against Censorship have sent a letter to the Brownsville Area School District asking it to reconsider the suspension given to several students who posted a Harlem Shake video online.
More than a dozen students were suspended in February when a video filmed during their digital photography class showed up online.
In the letter, the groups said school leaders are being more disruptive to the learning environment than the harmless
Internet fad could ever be.
The school district said the students' behavior was inappropriate.
