A group of parents in a school district north of Toronto kept their children out of school Wednesday to protest the use of Wi-Fi in classrooms.
Parents are concerned that Wi-Fi could be exposing their children to radiation six hours a day, five days a week, for 40 weeks of the year, she said.
“There have been no studies on children to determine whether that level of exposure for that length of time is safe,” said Marrin.

Ridiculous! There have been no studies on children to determine whether that level of exposure to sun, radio waves, overhead lighting, household wiring, smartboards, computer monitors, headphones, bus fumes, chewing gum, carpeting, paint, and so on, for that length of time is safe. This is a complete overreaction and a shifting of the burden of proof.
Skeptic North provides a sourced rundown of EMF claims. Once again, parents afraid of the wrong things.
