GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (CBS4) – A suggestive video taken of high school students has parents outraged in Grand Junction.

The video was shown during a school assembly at Central High School. The cellphone video shows students dancing provocatively with one another.

As the teens “grind” with each other they are scolded by others, including teachers.

It appears the video was meant to be used as a lesson to show students how to dance appropriately at school functions. But that explanation isn’t sitting well with at least one parent who e-mailed the Colorado Board of Education, calling the video a “disgrace.”

Students say the video was unnecessary.

“The video is pretty bad, they shouldn’t have done it. It’s given Central a bad name,” a student said.

“If they want to say grinding isn’t a good thing, they shouldn’t have put it on the video,” another student said.

District officials admit that taken out of context the video was offensive and say they are truly sorry.
