John should not start a campaign by telling a lie. The country did not get where it is in such a short time, meaning, of course, were in terrible shape caused by Trump. Wherever we are, it took eight long years under Obama and the likes of Clinton, Brennan, Comey, Rice, et al to create the need for a Trump. At least John should know what created the need for Trump, and should appreciate the effort to make America great again. An honest media, and an honest man, wouldn't beover the top angry. They might not like the man, but they can sure should appreciate both the effort and the accomplishments so far.
And once again, the reporter can't be bothered to check facts. Based on the master agreement signed in September 2017 by the union and the district, DPS teachers are actually in the midst of a 15% raise - 5% each year for 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20. Now, those are averages, so some are getting more and some are getting less. But no raise in a decade? This reporter is a joke.
Other advocates of lockerless schools also cite reasons such as reducing noise by eliminating the clang of dozens of locker doors, or creating a more appealing environment aesthetically. It has also been claimed that removing lockers provides good training for students by forcing them to be more efficient in managing their books, and taking the time to plan what books they will need, and carrying only those ones.
Tiers: may be specified as single-tier (full height), two-tier, three-tier, etc., meaning that the lockers are stacked on top of each other in layers two high, three high, etc. Tiers are commonly up to eight high; on occasion, even more tiers may be found, in the case of very small lockers for such purposes as storing laptop computers. The most common numbers of tiers found in lockers are, in order, one, two, and four; three-tier lockers are rather less common, and other numbers such as five, six, or eight even less common still - seven almost non-existent. Since locker cabinets are most commonly 6 feet (182.9 cm.) high (although there are exceptions), the height of individual lockers varies according to how many tiers are accommodated within the cabinet. The height of individual lockers is usually approximately 6 feet (182.9 cm.) divided by the number of tiers, so that two-tier lockers are about 3 feet (91.4 cm.) high, three-tier lockers 2 feet (61 cm.) high, four-tier lockers 1.5 feet (45.7 cm.) high, and so on. Standard features often vary according to the number of tiers: single-tier lockers usually include a shelf about a foot (roughly 30 cm.) from the top, and a hanging rail (sometimes with one or two hooks) immediately underneath that, at the top of the large compartment beneath the shelf; two- or three-tier lockers usually lack the shelf, but include the hanging rail; lockers with four or more tiers usually have none of these fittings, but consist of just the bare compartment.
