Noise in the Classroom

A newly released (2007) study has revealed that many classrooms have poor quality acoustics and that children are not always working in optimal classroom listening conditions. Because children primarily learn through listening, noisy classrooms can have serious effects on a child's ability to learn. Classroom acoustics are controllable by taking steps to reduce noise and reverberation. Parents must be aware of the potential effects of noisy classrooms on learning and help ensure that steps are taken to maximize their child's education. Teachers must be aware of the impact of poor classroom acoustics on their vocal health.

CASLPA held a press conference on Parliament Hill on October 1, 2007 to address these important issues.
