Wi-Fi Victory for Victor School

I  must respond to the letter written by Mr. McDermott, a parent with a child at Victor School.
I support the use of technology as one important teaching tool. At this time I believe that we should continue to use the hard
wired technology already built into our classrooms, at least, at the elementary level. And the reasons are as follows:
1. It will cost more to install wifi when we already have hard wired technology
2. Laptops and iPads can be charged using hard wired technology and taken from the trolleys and used anywhere in the school
3. The World Health Organization has classified wifi as a B2 carcinogen
4. Wifi is ubiquitous now and we are just beginning to understand the non thermal biological effects especially for children
5.Dr. Martha Herbert PhD M.D Harvard Medical School stated, after reviewing 550 current research findings,
‘EMF/RFR from wifi and cell towers can exert a disorganizing effect on the ability to learn and remember,
and can also be destabilizing to immune and metabolic function.  www.bioinitiative.org
6. I support the Precautionary Principle- prove that there are no negative effects
7. Our district, like every district, has children and employees experiencing significant sensitivity to EMF/RFR
