Why do most schools in America have lockers but most schools in England don’t?

    Because many schools in America believe in studying a variety of subjects every day, vs. only 2-3 subjects 2-3 times per week. So American kids need a place to store all of their books and supplies and not have to schlepp around 6 or 7 classes worth of stuff all day.

    I had no idea that England (most of England) didn’t have lockers. I am not sure how to answer. I know us Americans have lockers to store books and personal items when we don’t need to carry them. In school, I carry just about everything. However, I am lucky to have had my lockers aimed around the base of my main classes. Americans anyway are having difficult times with education, maybe we have more books because we have to learn more since other half America are high school drop outs are people who don’t care. I really don’t know, it just has to do with the ways of ones country I suppose.

    –Not a very good answer, but I would say its just a way of ones country. I hope I get to go to England one day.. 🙂 Sorry its a wee bit long.

    Well I’ve been to school in England and America, and although my English school had lockers they weren’t so necessary.

    We used small notebooks for notes, instead of huge binders, because American schools give lots of smaller assignments every day, which are always being handed in and given back, and all need to be filed. UK schools tend to have you take notes in your notebook and then just hand in bigger assignments throughout the year, like 2000 word essays. So we didn’t have so much paper. And text books were smaller- instead of a big huge book we’d have a series of smaller books we traded in throughout the year.

    Also in American schools they have the same schedule every day, going to classes for every subject. In my UK schools we only had 3 to 5 classes a day, and they would rotate over the week. So there was less changing around.

    In a school I’m familiar with the Head Teacher doesn’t want them. Issues of control and security are raised.

    In addition, the formula used in the design of state schools doesn’t permit them – the space for them isn’t part of the formula. So, if a school really wanted them it would have to lose space from elsewhere (or be really inventive).

    Given the weight of school bags I think lockers would be a good idea.

    Basic Training of the Puppy – Read here https://tr.im/p7n73

    The new puppy is certainly one of the most adorable and cuddly creatures that has ever been created. It is the most natural thing in the world to shower it with love and affection. However, at the same time it is important to realize that if you want to have a well trained adult dog, you need to begin the training process right away. The dog, like its related ancestor, the wolf, is a pack animal. One of the features of a pack is that it has a single dominant leader. Your new puppy is going to want that leader to be you, but if you do not assume that role from the very beginning, the puppy’s instincts will push him to become the leader.

    The most important thing to remember about training the puppy during its first six months of life is that it must see you as the leader of the family pack. The essential thing is gaining the trust and the respect of the puppy from the beginning. You will not do this by allowing the puppy to do whatever it wants to do whenever it wants to do it. On the other hand, a certain amount of patience is required. Most people err in their early training by going to extremes one way or the other. Although you need to begin the basic training process at once, you can not expect your dog to do too much at first. Basic obedience training is fine and should include simple commands like sit, stay, and come. Remember that trying to teach the dog advanced obedience techniques when it is a puppy is much like trying to teach a five year old child algebra.

    It is also important to restrain from cruel or abusive treatment of the puppy. You can not beat obedience into your dog, and it certainly is not going to engender feeling of respect and trust. House breaking is an area where this usually becomes a problem because of the anger that is triggered when the puppy fails and creates a mess inside the home. Although this issue must be addressed without anger, it most be addressed. If you allow the puppy to eliminate inside the house, it will continue to do so as an adult dog. The same thing is true of other destructive or dangerous behavior such as chewing and biting. Do not expect the puppy to grow out of it. You are going to need to train the puppy out of it, but you should do so firmly but with a sense of play and fun using positive reinforcement and lots of love and praise for good behavior.

    I bet a lot of it has to do with the architecture of schools in UK.

    Out here, the schools feel like jails. And now they are starting to phase out lockers because kids take too much time and show up late to classes. Thank alot you laggers.

    As far as I know, most schools in England DO have lockers. At least every school I’ve been to/worked in has them.
