WIFI removed at Surrey BC School, Canada | 28Mai2014 13:18:09
Narrator: One Surrey school is making sure that her students remain plugged in.
So Roots and Wings Montessori is a WiFi free zone and any technology at the school is hard-wired. The use of wireless internet and even cellphones has been banned due to health concerns surrounding that technology.
And given the risks involving children, the Principal just doesn't wanna take that risk.

Kristin Cassie: Whether this is true or not, the default I think needs to be on the side of safety. So, it was very easy for me just to remove it.
Narrator: By the way, the decision was made in consultation with a group called “Citizens For Safe Technology” that believes electromagnetic radiation emitted by wireless technology can cause serious health problems, from Alzheimer's disease to Parkinson's, autism and brain tumors.
