Good acoustical qualities are essential in classrooms and other learning spaces in which speech communication is an important part of the learning process. Excessive background noise or reverberation in such spaces interferes with speech communication and thus presents an acoustical barrier to learning. With good classroom acoustics, learning is easier, deeper, more sustained, and less fatiguing. There can be more verbal interaction and less repetition between teacher and students when spoken words are clearly understood. Conformance to acoustical standards will improve the quality of education by eliminating acoustical barriers for all students and teachers, including those with communication disabilities.
