A high school in China caused controversy after a teacher was filmed who wiped the faces of female students before they entered the campus.
A school spokesperson in rural Guizhou Province said many students had been wearing heavy makeup to the class and the school decided to ban the action.
He said that most students are the so-called & # 39; lagging behind & # 39; were children whose parents lived and worked in large cities, so teachers felt responsible for taking care of them and providing them with proper guidance.

The incident occurred yesterday outside of the Number Three Secondary School of Sansui County, Beijing News reported.
The student would return to school after a vacation.
The images show a group of girls standing in front of one teacher, taking the rag and scrubbing the face of one girl, wiping her makeup before she dips it in the bucket and goes to the next student.
Chinese internet users have debated whether or not they are appropriate for students to wear makeup at school after the video caused controversy. The school has no makeup policy
It was said that the short clip was filmed by a witness teacher.
He can be heard screaming in the local dialect & # 39; that red eye shadow trending this year & # 39; when his colleague rubs the face of a student.
The video became viral on Weibo, the equivalent of China in Twitter, and led to a debate about whether or not students are appropriate to wear makeup.
A poll on the social media platform shows that 64 percent of the participants agree with the school's policy.

A supporter said: & # 39; If they were my kids, I wouldn't let them show off and use cosmetics in high school and high school. & # 39;
Another wrote: & # 39; Make-up should not be allowed on campus for students in high school and lower. & # 39;
A third said: & # 39; This teacher is a responsible teacher and deserves our respect. & # 39;
But many also criticized the way the school had dealt with the matter.
A typical comment was: & # 39; Students should not use makeup, but the teacher's method is also incorrect. Do students not have dignity? & # 39;
Another opponent: & # 39; Does the teacher have the right to violently remove the makeup from students? & # 39;
A school spokesperson told Litchi News that it was the first time the school used this method.
& # 39; Many outsiders do not know the situation here. Our economy is lagging behind and about 90 percent of our students are children left behind. Their parents left them (here) to work (in the city) & he said.
& # 39; In many ways they miss the guidance and company of their parents. That is why they have formed radical aesthetic norms and values. & # 39;
The spokesperson said the management had failed to curb the trend of students with heavy makeup on campus.
He admitted that the method might be inappropriate, but the school wanted to fulfill its responsibility for educating children.
He also claimed that fewer students were caught with makeup after the incident.
What are the & # 39; left behind & # 39; children of china?
& # 39; Lagging & # 39; children often live in the poorest parts of China, such as Yunnan (photo)
More than nine million children have been & # 39; left behind & # 39; in rural China, according to the latest statistics released by Beijing in 2016.
Their parents are labor migrants who decide to move to the cities to find work to earn money.
Many of these labor migrant parents claim that they have no choice but to leave their national hometown for a living.
Their children would have limited access to education and health care in cities under the Chinese household registration system, forcing them to be left with family members.
The fate of their children is one of the most emotional consequences of the years of economic boom in China.
These children are usually cared for by grandparents, but sometimes have no guardians at all.
In most cases, they see their mother and father only once a year around the Lunar New Year.
