Note: The usefulness of a binder seems to vary from student to student, so we do not require that students have one.

Pros: Organized students can carry most everything they need in a binder.

Cons: If students try to put every single school supply in their binder, it can be quite heavy for them.  Zippers break easily if the binder is overfilled.  They don’t always easily fit into lockers and desks.  If students are not organized, they just have more room to shove their papers.  A stack of folders may serve them better.
