Dear Olga,
        Our middle school is the only one that still uses lockers. We
deal with jammed lockers and many broken into on a daily basis. On the
other hand, my son went to a middle school where they didn't have lockers
and he loved it. students did not have ehaavy backpacks since all had a
complete set of the texts at home. Each classroom had a complete set in
the classroom. Initially it would cost significantly more to purchase the
extra set of texts. In the long run, I think you will find an incredible
savings becasue you will have to replace less books to losses and damage.
finally, every student was prepared on a daily basis; the texts were
already in class. No one had to make a desperate trip to their lockers.
Saved a lot of time.  The teachers loved it. I wish it was a policy we
would install at our site.
        Hope this helps. sophia
