The importance of acoustics in the educational process has become the subject of debate among educators, acousticians, audiologists, speech therapists and acoustical engineers. Apart from the question of criteria for an acoustically appropriate classroom, opinions have been expressed on the benefits and proper use of sound-field amplification systems, standards for acoustical materials, vocal stress in teachers, student behavior and safety in schools.
Researchers suggest background noise in classroom plays an important role in the construction of behavioral problems among children with a current conductive hearing loss. It has been suggested that students cannot clearly follow the vocal communication in a classroom will become alienated and anti-social. Although other factors may be involved, a poor acoustical environment is often a real handicap to some students affecting their participation in the dynamics of the classroom.
