The Concerned About Classrooms Coalition is a SAC-led group of organizations whose goal is to enhance the learning environment of millions of students and the vocal health of teachers in Canada. This group held a press conference on Parliament Hill in 2009 followed by a media briefing teleconference to address these important issues and to urge the federal government to show leadership in our children’s education by encouraging provincial governments to implement acoustical standards for Canadian schools.
