At metro high schools, lockers are losing their luster
The rows of sleek, shiny lockers that once symbolized American high school life are gathering dust across the Twin Cities metro area.
In some schools, they’re going away completely.
Some students are hardly touching their lockers, opting to tote books via backpack instead of doubling back to their storage spot multiple times a day. Less time jiggling combination locks means more time socializing between classes.
