When it comes to children and school, safety always comes first… unless of course you live in China. Then safety comes right after a clean window.

One elementary school in Beijin, China requires its children to clean the windows as routine task once a week.


Every Wednesday, students climb out the classroom window, standing on a 10 centimeter (less than 4 inches) wide platform and clean the windows without any safety protection. Some windows are as high as 3 stories.

The school officials say this is their way of shaping their students will and bravery.
