Should there be mandatory radon testing in schools? Which argument did you find more convincing?

Radon is a radioactive element.
Mandatory means like by law.

  1. The probability is not high of Radon, unless you are over a uranium mine.

    The cost benefit would be greater if we had mandatory head lice inspections.

  2. Law or no law, there is no excuse for irradiating children in their schools.
    However, where?
    There are places like towns where granite is or was quarried that are likely to have radon gas seeping into buildings. There are other places where the radioactive poison just does not exist.
