The Sound of Learning.
Anderson, Karen L.
American School Board Journal, v184 n10 p26-28 Oct 1997
Children often struggle in noisy classrooms. Many classrooms being planned duplicate acoustically inadequate 50-year-old designs that cannot accommodate group learning and hands-on science. The Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board, which enforces Individuals with Disabilities Education Act regulations, has been asked to develop guidelines for acceptable sound levels in public spaces, including schools.
