Massachusetts Schools’ Behavior Suggests Wave of Decisions Regarding Wireless Technology
A school in Worcester, Massachusetts recently made an administrative decision regarding wireless technology. In the midst of the debate about whether or not wireless and cellular radiation presents a danger to students, Worcester’s Teaching, Learning, and Student Support Standing Committee agreed to allow a few essential principles regarding wireless technology to be posted on the school’s website so that school members can make an informed decision after a planned February meeting with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. Worcester’s decision parallels a similar choice recently made by the Ashland school system. The school urges individuals who believe that there is not a health risk associated with wireless technology to read critical scientific information, which will inform readers that there are some important and legitimate points that exist regarding the dangers presented by cellular and wireless technology. Worcester’s school district also announced a desire to avoid litigation, which is a significant risk in many cases. For example, the parents of a student at the Fay School in Southboro, Massachusetts have claimed that their child suffers from electromagnetic hypersensitivity and have initiated a case in U.S. District Court because the school refused to accommodate the child’s electrosensitivity condition.
Details about Fay School Case
The case concerning discrimination from electromagnetic hypersensitivity in a Fay School student is important for individuals interested in the wireless debate because this case is of an unprecedented nature. This case was initiated by a mother and father who claim that their 12-year-old son “G” suffers from electromagnetic hypersensitivity syndrome. Like many individuals who suffer from hypersensitivity, “G” experienced headaches, nosebleeds, nausea, and various other symptoms after Fay School installed a new and more powerful wireless Internet system in 2013. The school has responded to this case by claiming that the school’s wireless signals have been determined to be significantly below the levels required by the federal safety standards. The family has sought an injunction that would require the Fay School to either switch to a wired internet form, turn down the wireless frequency in the school’s classroom, or make another suitable accommodation. The suit also seeks damages for the child.
