Anti-Smart Meter Group Opposed to Worcester School Tech UpgradesEmail to a friend Permalink
Anti-smart meter group – HaltMAsmartmeters – has come out in strong opposition to a national initiative that may begin to take place in the Worcester Public Schools.
“Schools in Switzerland use fiber optics,” said Burke. “The European Parliament voted in September 2008 to recommend tighter safety standards for wireless technology like Wi-Fi, especially to protect vulnerable groups like children. The German Federal Government has issued a statement advising against the use of Wi-Fi and a German Teachers Union (GEW) and the Frankfurt City Government are warning against the installation of Wi-Fi in schools. The French National Library has abandoned its planned Wi-Fi system due to reported health effects and many schools in France are removing Wi-Fi systems. The Austrian Medical Association and the City of Salzburg have both warned against the use of WiFi in schools.”
