(China Plus) A middle school in North China has made bowing to teachers a requirement. Announced this semester, students at Shangshu Middle School in Handan, Hebei Province must bow to their teachers before every class, after their morning run and at other specified times. Teachers are supposed to bow in return.

The new regulations are part of a new "etiquette program" aiming to reinforce traditional Chinese values. What's more, the school is assigning bows and foot washing as homework. On weekends, students are required to bow to their parents and wash the feet of their elders.

According to the regulations, a proper bow stops at 90 degrees and should last more than 10 seconds. The school is requiring parents to keep tabs on their children's etiquette by taking photos and posting them to a school chat group.

The bowing would have taken less time and been more convenient than pledging Allegiance to the
flag of the United States of America, which we had to do every morning in elementary school in
the US. Plus, I didn't have to parrot something I really didn't entirely agree with.
the foot washing is a different story. I don't think I would have liked that at all.
