Ideas for Schools emerged during my week in Eugene: Encourage students to:

a) Compare the growth of seeds planted beside a Wi-Fi router and far from a router (as Danish students did)

b) Learn the difference between "safe" exposure levels set by the FCC, the Air Force (see the Radio Frequency Radiation Dosimetry Handbook, 5th Edition, edited by William P. Roach), and the BioInitiative Working Group (www.bioinitiative.org).

c) Learn about likely diseases caused by various EMR exposures. (See Color Charts at www.bioinitiative.org; new studies at www.saferemr.com.)

d) Learn how to measure EMR emissions with meters, then test their own electronic devices' emissions.

e. Determine their own safety standards--for themselves and their school.

If any school does this, I'll post the report on my website.

These ideas contrast markedly with corporations' drive to create "digital citizens." Apple and Pearson are selling school districts packages that include digital curricula and testing, an iPad for every child, routers in every classroom, apps that take away classroom conversation and replace it with typed answers to a screen. The corporations collect billions of dollars and data-mined profiles of each child for lifelong marketing.

YIKES.
