Laundry lockers are used in places like hospitals and food-processing workplaces where uniforms have to be collected, laundered, then returned to their owners. The locker cabinet contains a number of very narrow lockers, each of whose doors is keyed using a key held by the owner, so that they have access only to their own locker; but the entire array of doors is embedded in a much larger door covering the entire front of the cabinet. Opening this opens all the lockers simultaneously, and requires the use of a master key which is held by whoever collects items deposited in lockers, for laundering, then returned in the same way, after which they items are accessible to owners using their individual small doors.
So, what is a traditional school? Is it a consolidated school district with large school buildings and at least 30 students to a classroom? Where students are assigned to a class by age and not by reading ability? Where boys who might learn better using kinesthetic (tactile) learning are forced to learn through auditory teaching methods and so they are often left behind. For centuries learning on our continent was done in a one room school house where the teacher would have each student read to her at the beginning of the school year and then the student would be assigned reading primers and learn at their level and the results were much better than the results we are getting today. That was a traditional school. Charter schools are doing a much better job of preparing students for life after graduation. They haven't gotten all the way back to a traditional school, but they are closer. My question for Jane Feldman is, why do you want to hold on to a failing school model?
Locking options: various types of key locking or padlocking facility are available now. Key locking options include flush locks, cam locks, or locks incorporated into a rotating handle; padlocking facilities may be a simple hasp and staple, or else a padlocking hole may be included in a handle, often called a latchlock. More modern designs include keyless operation, either by coin deposit (which may or may not be returned when use of the locker terminates), or by using electronic keypads to enter passwords for later reopening the locker. Some older lockers used a drop-latch which was incorporated into the door handle, and slid up and down and could be padlocked at the bottom in the "down" position, but these are less used now. Three-point locking is not possible with this type of latch, because it needs to be operated by means of a latch that rotates rather than slides up and down; so this drop-latch is probably a less secure locking option, which may be why it is little used nowadays. Prefect Combination locks are very popular in school lockers used in the UK due to their ease of use and the time and cost saved in the removal of locker keys.
