It's a good thing I'm not in a US public school then. But to get back on topic, I really still think the situation was blown out of proportion because it was just merely about connecting to the internet. It's really going out on a limb to think that because I added a router in my room, I've somehow threatened the security of our school that is located in no man's land with less 100 students in this village town and my internet signal can't even be picked up beyond my little 300 ft sq classroom. It's okay though. I removed the wifi router and I'm no longer using it. I'm still using my own notebook and connecting it directly with an 2nd ethernet cable the classroom already has. I've done it for 7 years. ZERO problems. I even do all my online banking with the school's and my own computer on the school internet. Unless someone really wants to hack my lesson plans and steal my ABC games, it's never been an issue (security wise), and I've been able to deliver a lot of good things from being able to use the internet with my own devices in class.
