This may seem like a silly post...but here they have removed all lockers from the High schools. It seemed that in this digital age that perhaps they were going more technical...refuse books...go to iPad etc.. But no...I have two high school boys, the school would be viewed as middle to upper class...( kids drive nicer cars than I ever had). We are in the south..but Monday at the bus stop it will be 29 degrees. Kids don't wear coats... no where to put them. Lunches...got to cart them with you all day...no iPads provided..so, yes, about 50lbs of books! They still use drug sniffing dogs in schools....but lugging everything is nuts I think!? Is this a trend in other parts of the country?
