On International Students’day (november 17th) experts sound alarms about the connection between too much noise and a reduced capacity to learn. In Italian classrooms noise often exceeds 70 decibels.

Sometimes reduced performance at school can hide a reduced hearing ability which, if undetected, can lead to poor outputs.
