Faced with a failing class and few motivational options, one teacher in China's Guangxi province decided to bargain with her students in a last-ditch effort to get them to study hard.

In a move likely unauthorized by the local education department, the unnamed teacher promised to come to school dressed as a sexy French maid if the pupils earned top scores in their upcoming monthly exam.

Apparently that was all the incentive they needed, because the marks came back stellar, and the teacher had no choice but to fulfill her end of the deal.

Photos of the cat-eared instructor all-maid-up circulated on Chinese social networks eliciting both positive and negative reactions. The original poster ultimately removed the images, but not before they were grabbed by thousands.

You know, for educational purposes.
