Locker Liabilities         Lockers have always been a part of highschool. They’re where people meet up, talk, and waste time, but should they still be where people store their binders and books?        The locker bay and the lockers within them most times are a hassle more than a help to use. To get to your locker you must weave through a crowd of people, tread over book bags, and wait for the person below or above you, who always seems to take forever, to move. Usually, by the time you are finally able to get your books out of your locker you have to run to make it to your next class.       Many students, including myself, have decided the best way to avoid these problems associated with lockers is to not use the lockers at all. Storing everything possible in your backpack and just carrying it with you all day long seems to work just as well if not better.        A backpack may be smaller than a locker and you may not be able to store the giant math textbook you rarely use in it, but a backpack can hold all the essential binders and books you need for everyday class. It can fit all your class binders, your book for English, pencils, notebooks, a laptop, and whatever else you are able to cram in there.        One issue people opposed to the backpack strategy have is that “it gets too heavy”.  While yes it can get heavy if you are putting a textbook in there it isn't like you are wearing your backpack for more than the five minutes it may take to get to class.        In conclusion, the decision is yours. Embark on the journey it takes to reach your locker every period or do as many of us here at Stratford do and carry the essentials with you.
