Yes, handheld electronics such as smart phones and tablet computers are being used more and more. But there are increasing numbers of epidemiologists, surgeons and scientists warning about the use of these wireless gadgets because they are finding evidence of disease and biological damage. Now doesn't seem to be the right time to be increasing wireless networks in High schools.

Why not take a safety-first approach?

Was it deliberate or a coincidence that this article ran on the front page beside the article about the tower at the Presbyterian Church. I suspect all these antennas in the schools will put out more power than anyone will get from the Church.
