Some schools in the United States have been reported to have abolished the use of lockers. Security concerns are cited as the reason for this, with the concern being that lockers may be used to store contraband items such as weapons or drugs or pornographic material. There has been some controversy over in what circumstances school authorities or law-enforcement officials are permitted to search lockers, with or without informing the users, or with or without the users being present at the time of the search, and it has been considered a civil liberties issue, particularly in the U.S.
In schools without lockers, students are sometimes provided with two complete sets of textbooks, one set being kept at school for use in class, and the other being kept at home for referring to for homework, thus limiting the amount of heavy carrying that would otherwise be required without having lockers to store them in between classes. However, research has shown an increase in the incidence of back injuries in some students, which has been directly attributed to the lack of lockers for storing books in, thus forcing students to spend more time carrying heavy loads of books in backpacks.
On one of our trips, (Honolulu, I think) there was a business which had vans that would meet you at the airport outside baggage claim and store your luggage in the van. Then when you were finished sightseeing, you called the driver to arrange a meeting place at the airport to pick up your bags and head back into the airport for departure. I was a little leery of this arrangement, but several Trip Advisor folks had used it and gave it a thumbs up, so we tried it and it worked great. I've often wondered if something like that would work at DIA.
