The students who I taught for a year at a public school in Dallas, Texas, were required to carry see-through backpacks made from plastic. After 20 kids were caught with “cheese,” the heroin/Tylenol mix, in their sacks, administrators banned opaque bags and sealed up the lockers, too, decorating them instead with paper projects about the moon phases and posters encouraging proper nutrition. Eat seven fruits and vegetables a day. Drink milk. Don’t bring heroin to school.
