WIFI is back to classes in Haifa (Israel)

Last year, the municipality of Haifa, the third biggest city in Israel, announced that the WIFI will be shut down in it's classes and schools. This week, an article in a local news paper reviles complains by parents that the system is working again. The municipality reply was that the WIFI systems operational is limited and that steps were taken to reduce the radiation. The municipality spokesmen also reply that the read problem is the students cell phone which it claim it can do nothing about. These words are very resembles to the mantras that the ministry of education (the body that pushes for WIFI in schools for the last 5 years) to try and dismiss the opposition to WIFI in schools. Please also note that according to the ministry of education own CEO memo and documentations every schools can ban and limit the use of cellphone in the school.

    2. Yes, it seems the ministry of education did not want it to be turned off.
      But It is not entirely ON, not all the time and not in all classes. There is still hope. we must fight on.
