Teacher Stops Kids Cheating In Exam By Putting Cardboard Boxes On Their Heads

Teacher Stops Kids Cheating In Exam By Putting Cardboard Boxes On Their Heads

A teacher has been suspended for making a group of high school kids put cardboard boxes on their heads in a bit to stop them from cheating in an exam.

The bizarre incident took place in Mexico, with parents outraged at the teacher's approach to discipline.

According to local media, they have even demanded that he is dismissed from the Bachilleres 01 El Sabinal School in the central Mexican state of Tlaxcala.

Reports said that the Ethics and Values teacher, who has been identified as Luis Juarez Texis, made the class wear boxes on their heads to stop them copying during the exam. Images taken at the time back up the claims.

Through a press release, the parents said: "This is how Luis Juarez Texis treats and humiliates his class," and asked the authorities to 'protect the rights of the students'.

They also asked for the teacher to be dismissed as this kind of 'violence' should not be tolerated.

In response to the backlash, the school explained that it was a 'dynamic exercise' to help 'the students' psychomotor development'.

They also said that the students had consented to the exercise beforehand. The school added that it 'respects human and individual rights', and that it was a 'playful activity'.

One commented that the man was a 'magnificent and innovative teacher'.

It's not the first time a teaching institution has come under fire for their unconventional approach to stopping cheating in exams.

As reported by Metro, Kasetsart University in Thailand used these strange, yet very resourceful hats for their students. Created by stapling A4 ear flaps to another peice of paper, the idea was apparently thought up by the students themselves.

After attracting loads of attention, the uni held a press conference to explain the hats.

"It was an agreement between us. No student was forced to wear a hat. Instead, all were happy to do so and thought it was fun. They felt more relaxed during the test," said Nattadon Rungruangkitkrai, a lecturer at the faculty.

"It was not meant to indicate that Kasetsart students often cheat on exams. I apologise if the photo makes other people look at my students in a negative way."
