School Puts Children in Danger to Boost Their Bravery
Posted on November 11, 2007
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.
