Coming Thursday: TCAPS officials say student newspaper graphic crossed line

TRAVERSE CITY — A satirical graphic and text about sexually suggestive dancing in Traverse City Central High School's student newspaper crossed a line of appropriateness, district officials said.

The newspaper graphic depicts a four-stage guide to "grinding', a form of dancing that prompted Central administrators to crack down on student behavior at a homecoming dance last fall. The illustration includes pictures of two female students demonstrating how to grind, with one student suggestively bent over in front of the other.
