Policy According to the Law Relating to Use of Wi-Fi in Schools in Israel

In general it may be said that non-ionizing radiation emitted by routers and end-user-devices for wireless communication networks is very low. However, in Israel and abroad, there are opponents to the installation and use of wireless networks in public places, specifically in schools.  Given the Ministry of Education's responsibility to protect the health and safety of students, and because of the public debate on this issue, the Ministry has addressed the need to strike a balance between using the Wi-Fi network in educational institutions in Israel, and the possible health effects of such use. This subject is discussed in detail in the sections listed below.
