BENNINGTON, VT —  For high schoolers who like to drop it like it’s hot, a principal in Vermont says, “Make it stop!”

Apparently, Miley can’t. But if the top dog at Mount Anthony Union in Bennington has her way, the twerking trend will come to a grinding halt.

At least at her school.

And according to Sue Maguire’s editorial in her hometown paper, “dancing to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving a low squatting stance and thrusting movements” is not okay in school!

Here’s the real slap in the face — she canceled Homecoming!

Now, the administration has some fires of their own to put out. They’re catching some flack for dumping the dance, and it really may be a little extreme.

Hopefully, the school can “twerk” something out.
