The reason I agree with lockers is being the school owns them, but the
school does NOT own back packs or the students' bodies. Because of my
political awareness I never used a locker after seventh grade when I was
outraged by a search. To be honest, all I had in my locker was some love
letters, but the possibility of adults finding those is pretty scare to a
seventh grader. I never even knew where my locker was my senior year of high
school. I didn't ask, I didn't care.
