The TechSafeSchool project grew out of a concern by parents of children with increased sensitivity to radiofrequency microwave radiation, exacerbated by the increasing proliferation of wireless devices in classrooms.
The project is designed to provide school officials, teachers and parents with legal, technical and scientific information to help create the safest learning environment possible. Our recommendations will not interfere with technology-based curricula.
We do not have a product to sell, a program to promote or a new technology to market. Our focus is simply the health, safety and well-being of all students in all schools. We believe the best environment for learning is a safe environment.
This program is funded by private foundations and individuals, and designed and managed by Grassroots Environmental Education, an award-winning non-profit organization based in New York. You can learn more about Grassroots and its work at www.Grassrootsinfo.org.
"The health and wellness of our school community has always been a top priority, and reducing the RFR exposure to staff and students was an important step in protecting everyone. Our IT staff executed our safer technology-based curriculum by significantly reducing exposure without impacting the delivery of our curriculum."
