School is a child's workplace – an environment where students can spend up to eight hours a day, five days a week. Some schools serve as both workplaces and homes for students. As parents, teachers and administrators, we must ensure that these environments are as safe as possible. 

​

Todays' classrooms are filled with countless wireless devices, from laptops and tablets to smart boards and smart speakers, not to mention personal cell phones. All of these devices emit radiofrequency (RF) radiation, and the exposure is cumulative. 



Recently, U.S. government studies have confirmed what many other studies have shown: the decades-old theory that non-ionizing radiation only causes thermal effects is wrong.  Exposure to RF radiation, even at levels below government standards, can also cause biological harm, and is increasingly recognized around the world as a public health problem. The developing bodies of children are particularly vulnerable. 

​The best environment for learning is a safe environment. Schools should be hard-wired, so that in every classroom the Internet is accessible through Ethernet-cable connections. It is possible to have wired schools with no Wi-Fi at all, so as to protect our most vulnerable - children.
