Every child deserves a learning environment that is as free as possible of distractions to learning. When children are in a noisy or distracting classroom environment, their ability to hear the teacher and pay attention is compromised. In this situation, children are likely to miss important information that the teacher is giving them. This may cause the child to fall behind academically. One major factor in a child's learning environment that may be invisible to most people is poor room acoustics. If acoustics in the classroom are poor, children may not receive all of the information the teacher believes is being taught.
