This is some dedication to education.
The students at Barberton High School in Ohio were taking part in a Criminal Science Technology Career Tech Education course, and volunteered to be sprayed for the class.
The teens were “subjected to a small amount of pepper spray for a brief period of time,” Patti Cleary, the superintendent for the Barberton City School District, told BuzzFeed News in a statement.
Students were required to get their parents' permission before they could get sprayed.
They were sprayed by their teacher, the statement read, who is a “former police chief, and an experienced professional.”
