Would you allow your son or daughter to be peppered sprayed at school? Well ,14 parents at an Ohio high school did. 14 Ohio high school students were voluntarily pepper sprayed by their teacher, a former police chief, as a part of a Criminal Justice Technology experiment.
“Students had an opportunity to voluntarily participate in an activity in which they would be subjected to a small amount of pepper spray for a brief period of time. The activity was conducted by the class instructor, who is a former police chief, and an experienced professional,” Barberton City Schools Superintendent Patricia Cleary told PEOPLE in a statement.
