Madness in the school system!

What next? Child slave labour to pay for schools? Can't be any more harmful from what they are doing now!

Cell phone towers dial up extra cash for schools

Hayley Ringle, Tribune

Many East Valley school districts have found an easy way to bring in extra money as they deal with tight budgets: leasing land or easements for cell phone towers.

It's something school districts have been doing for years, most since the mid-1990s, and it's been a lucrative way of getting extra revenue.

The Mesa Unified School District, which has 38 towers throughout the district, brings in about $419,000 a year from the leases.

The Gilbert Unified School District gets $96,000 annually, enough to pay for two teachers.

The Chandler Unified School District has received about $1.3million from 15 cell phone towers on district campuses, including a 30-year lease at Basha High School with T-Mobile worth $856,000, said Frank Fletcher, an associate superintendent for support services.

"For us it's really pretty painless and we get a significant amount of funding for occupying a piece of our property," Fletcher said. "For us it's kind of like a cash cow. It contributes to our funding issues that we have in the state, and it's a good thing for both parties."

Hi Hayley


I do not know what sort of people are running the Pheonix school system, but it seems that they are not very bright.


There are masses of scientific studies which show that microwave radiation (as used by cell phones) is genotoxic, causes cancer and a great many other serious adverse health effects.  School board trustees have a duty to know this sort of information and to protect their children.  They should look at the Bio-Initiative report for scientific information which details the health harm caused by electro magnetic radiation, it can be accessed at .  For details of how animals , birds, bees and the environment are being affected by EMR, they can look at .


It is clearly time for some of your civic leaders to go back to school and learn about the dangers that they are putting school children into.  I have attached several stories which are relevant to cell phone towers and cancer clusters.


Yours sincerely

Too Young for a Cell Phone By Louis Slesin

NEW YORK, New York, July 25, 2008 (ENS) - The brains of young children
absorb twice as much as radio frequency energy from a cell phone as those of
adults, according to a set of new calculations carried out by Joe Wiart's
research group at France Telecom in the suburbs of Paris.

"[Our] analysis confirms that peripheral brain tissues of children seem to
be higher exposed than the peripheral brain tissue of adults," Wiart
concludes in a paper that appears in the July 7 issue of the journal
"Physics in Medicine and Biology."

"Children are not simply small adults," Wiart explained in an interview with
"Microwave News."
