Last Wednesday a school in India implemented a trial run of a new anti-cheating measure: wearing cardboard boxes on the head.
Take a look.
The front of the boxes are cut out, allowing students to see their desks and exam sheets but restricting their vision, similar to blinkers used on a horse.
The photos were posted on Facebook by a staff member and promptly went viral, according to CNN affiliate CNN News 18.
Before long, the school was facing widespread criticism on social media.
Even government officials weighed in.
Apparently, the school had notified parents in advanced and only students with parental approval had been involved.
The school has provided authorities with a written explanation of the trial and an apology.
