For that matter - some cell phones do strange things to your room audio too. Not all people hear the high frequency noise - but the ones that do hear it - I understand, it can be rather bothersome. It very well could be - like you said - a wireless device coming into the classroom or the florescent lights. That's my vote.
Good luck Steve! If you do find what the cause is - please let us know! Thanks.
