A group of Barberton high school students agreed to be pepper sprayed for the purposes of education last week.

The video was posted on the pro police Blue Lives Matters website and has since been viewed more hundreds of thousands of times.

But once a few seconds pass, the students on the one end who were shot first start yelling in agony.

Parents usually sign off on their kids going on school trips to the aquarium or to an overnight camp, but these permission slips had the words "pepper spray". "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.

Added supervision was provided by the school's resource officer.

Each student had the option to be swabbed or receive a quick "burst" to the facial area. It will cause irritation and a burning sensation to the eyes and nasal area for approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Prior to the exercise, the students were required to get written parental permission. In order to graduate from a career tech program in OH, students need 12 points, so the spray was probably well worth it for some.

The pepper spray training is meant to help students earn industry credentials in public safety from the Ohio Department of Education, the school said in a statement.

The Barberton Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

Teenagers in OH volunteered to be pepper sprayed by police officers in a radical "life lesson".
