CST-Victoria (a group of concerned parents and citizens) is calling for the Board of School District 61 to adopt the Precautionary Principle and not install any more wireless Internet systems in public schools until it can be proven safe.
The Greater Victoria School District has set up a sub-committee to re-evaluate the safety of Wi-Fi technology in schools, and has started the first of a series of meetings on the issue.
Press Release - a great summary of the concerns:
"A Channels" News TV coverage on SD61's first Committee meeting on Wi-Fi:
Greater Victoria Teachers Association (GVTA):
Doctors and Scientists around the world have warned against unnecessary exposure of children to RF/microwave from wireless technology and recommend safer WIRED internet connection instead, both in school and at home. We are parents who fully support the use of computers and the incorporation of technology in education, and we believe that it must be implemented in a SAFE manner.
