Classroom Acoustics Noise Control & Soundproofing Solutions
Noise pollution is neglected in educational institutions, although it can cause multiple negative effects on students and teachers. The majority of noise pollution in educational institutions is due to areas in which they are located. Many schools are near busy roads, public squares, bus stops as well as developed traffic. Exposure to high noise levels causes many health problems making it difficult for learning. Noise pollution interferes with the ability to understand normal speech and can lead to a number of personal handicaps and behavioral changes.
