An Ohio high school is defending its decision to pepper spray a group of 11th graders  from Barberton High School, about 40 miles south of Cleveland.

As part of a class in law and public safety, the instructor made the students line up against a wall and spritzed them one by one with a burst of pepper spray.

Apparently, the students volunteered for the activity -- and their parents OK'd it.

The school is insisting that it was simply a lesson in law enforcement and consequences.

...I'll stick with time-out. Thanks.
