Question: Are Book Bags Too Heavy?

From middle to high school, I will say mine certainly was. They had lockers but they never gave us much time to go and get that stuff out of there and it was a hassle. I remember having so much stuff that some of book-bags would tear. I can see why a lot of schools are having a lot of digital work with tablets and computers. 

Was your bookbag too heavy?

  2. Mine never was because we had lockers to put books into and had enough time 8 minutes to get to the lockers, bathroom whatever in between classes especially in high school. But when my daughter was in high school they gave them 4 minutes to get to each class and they weren't allowed to use the lockers. Her backpack was always heavy as hell and it pissed me off.

  5. Over the years there seems to be many different styles of book bags, and some days I can remember my book bag was heavy!

  6. I went to a boarding college so this never concerned me.
    However watching students humping backpacks to school these days
    all I can think of is the medical profession will be quite busy with
    back complaints of these students as they advance in age.
    It is utterly ridiculous to even wonder what MUST be in those bags.

  9. My middle school aged daughter has a horribly heavy bag. I hate having to move it when she leaves it laying around the house.

  10. I think book bags are way too heavy, especially for elementary children. I was a 2nd-3rd grade teacher throughout my career. One memorable day, the combined weight of all the book bags hanging on the coat hooks pulled the entire system out of our classroom wall. After that, I had my kiddos put heavy bags on the floor under the coat hooks. There was no room to put things in their desks or by their desks. I was for eliminating homework from kindergarten through third grade, but our district was adamant about having it.
