Can you imagine carrying 20lb on your back 5 days a week for 8 hours straight? It’s not healthy carrying heavy items on your back. A writer from ehow.com says that “lockers are one of few places where minors can have privacy in school.” “Lockers are the only place in school a person can call their own.” All students in New York City must have their own locker.

 All schools in NYC should provide lockers to young ones because they need their own personal space. According to a survey in kdsk.com, about 95% of students don't use lockers in the United States. Researchers from ehow.com find that lockers are for privacy. Lockers are very important to young people because they need their own space.

 Backpacks are too heavy and unhealthy; researchers from essortment.com find that students don't need to carry jackets or school supplies for a whole day. Every time I carry my backpack and I place it on the floor my neck starts to hurt badly. Other students should not have to go through this. Students wouldn't be able to carry 10 pound backpacks around all day throughout the school day.

 Some people may argue that lockers are too expensive to buy. That is an understandable concern, however youths need their own space. Lockers last for years so its not going anywhere its staying in one place forever. Your not going to need to buy more lockers again!

 All schools in NYC should provide lockers to young ones because they need their own personal space in their schools. Minors should write a letter to their principles. Kids should go on strike. In other words children should stand up and do a petition.
