    Ban mobile phones and wireless networks in schools.

    Ban mobile phones and wireless networks in schools, say European leaders - Telegraph

    ---

    Do you think anything will come of it, or do you think it is all just scaremongering.
    How much would it effect your schools?

    We have quite a lot of wireless and it is used, but we also have a wired computer in every classroom so it wouldn't be a massive problem if it was all taking out. Though I know a lot of primary schools who have no wired network at all, and this would be a huge cost to them if it had to be changed.

    Sounds like more bad science to me. Without proof this is nothing more than scaremongering.

    Surely as most homes now have wifi, more then one mobile telephone, cordless telephone based on wireless tech and umpteen other things, it is not just schools they should be looking at!?

    What will they suggest next we have to turn it all off... like that will happen!

    I'm sure at some point some muppet who has nothing better to do will claim that breathing is also bad for you!
