  • I have a better question: Why do children have to carry so much crap around with them that they need luggage to hold it all? When I went to school, we took our lunch and a pencil and a notebook. That's all. And children were better educated then than they are now, and we spent far much less money on education then than we do now. This system is all screwed up!!!

  • People trip on them, you can't hang them up our school doesn't allow them.

  • In our old school they wouldn't fit into the cubbies that the kids stored their stuff in.

  • Maybe they're hard on the floors? They roll through Lord knows what & track stuff in too. I'd ask the school why. I know some schools only allow clear back-packs for security purposes.
