For generations, school kids had lockers. But in Texas, some schools are no longer assigning them. Only two students out of 2,700 at a high school in Austin asked for lockers this year. The rest were wired shut. Some students don't need lockers, because they rely on laptops rather than textbooks. Security concerns are another reasons lockers aren't being used.
