    Re: Our First Student with Health Problems Due to Wireless!!

    As a school in cornwall, I am now worried that our wifi maybe enhanced by our natural radiation causing the kids to mutate into super beings.

    I wonder if the Daily Mail would be interested in a story...

    I think you just have to ring them up and say "I have something quite controversial to say" and they would be interested in the story. Mention a quasi-celebrity and you've got yourself a front-page story.

    I wish somebody would ban WiFi in schools, it would save us a load of hassle with dropped connections, contention, maybe we could ban laptops too! No WiFi at school would be good for my health!

    I'd like to ban printers and projectors as well. Bright lights and ink particles can't be good for anyone's health.

    This wireless business, i think its a load of tosh to be honest. I brought wireless into our school 2 years ago now, and we aint had any problems at all. Infact, your grades have gone up if anything.

    Meh. I suspect there is something happening, we just don't know what yet. But... can we (that includes the complaining parents) do anything about it? Nope. Not at all. Mobiles phones are everywhere. Wifi is everywhere. Complaining to the school is just looking for someone to blame. I mean, anything bad that happens to a child is their schools fault now isn't it?

    Yeah we have wireless here for while too and we suffer no ill effects.

    Bat makes a good point - I could turn our wireless off in school but it wouldn't achieve anything at all as many of our classrooms are served a lovely wireless signal from the nearby houses (one room has upwards of 3 different networks in range of it!).

    Re: Our First Student with Health Problems Due to Wireless!!

    Hi! Love the show, I'm a first-time caller...

    There's nothing we can do about this until there's actually been some authoritive research into the ill-effects of wireless. Until then, we just need to make sure that if a student (or teacher, for that matter) complains about it, the school have a stance based on the information available.

    My current stance would be:

    "Quit your jibber-jabber! Give me proof, and I'll shut down the wireless, fool!"

    ...partly cos pretending to be Mr T makes me cool.

    We have to have health scares every so often. It gives certain tabloids something to focus on, other than celebrities and reality TV. Recent examples:

    Green apples give you cancer
    Mad Deer Disease
    Teflon causes blood poisoning
    Sunday Roasts reduce male fertility

    Whilst I admit that low-level electro-magnetic radiation is something that is currently causing concern (and possibly with good reason), without any government-backed, conclusive research we can't possibly be expected to worry about it yet. And of course, every kid has a mobile phone practically welded to their ear, probably has wireless at home (and if not, their neighbour does), probably binge-drinks down the park at the weekend, smokes dope at every opportunity and plays chicken with juggernaughts on the A40...

    Sorry, I have no idea if this is relevant any more. I gave up smoking last week. I'm in ranting mood...
