Now this is brilliant! If you can’t get these things shut off during school hours, go for a health risk lawsuit and maybe someone will pay attention. Considering all the proof that cell phones create brain tumors and effect learning…-A.M.
TORONTO, Aug. 15, 2013 /CNW/ – This afternoon the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario voted at its annual general meeting that student cell phones should be turned off and stored during school hours, unless a teacher gives permission.
The vote was part of a series of motions requesting that radiation from cell phones and WiFi be recognized as a potential workplace hazard for teachers.
“There is cause for concern for members’ health and safety, especially women,” said Sandra Wash, a teacher representing Peel District who spoke at the meeting.
