I've thought about this recently, when I heard that a lot of High Schools don't have lockers anymore because of drugs / weapons being brought to school & stored in them. I can't imagine having to carry so many textbooks around all day with no place to store books not needed for the 1st 1/2 of the day.

I think you should petition with other parents, the school your kids go to (if they don't have lockers), and possibly hire an attorney to send a strongly worded letter to the principal. If that doesn't work, contact a local reporter & have them do a story in front of the school to bring attention to weight of backpacks & concern over future medical problems.
