A New Zealand dad’s concern for the health and safety of school children have a won a battle against a local school to have the wi-fi removed and use wired connections instead.
Damon Wyman and David Bird led a campaign to remove the wireless system from Te Horo School and replace it with cable-based internet due to concerns it could cause cancer and other health problems.
Damon is the father of Ethan who died from a brain tumor and had attended the local school. His son was exposed to Wi-Fi at school, and he also slept with an Internet-connected iPod under his pillow at night.
The school sent a survey to parents, and after reviewing the results agreed to remove the wi-fi in the junior classrooms.
