    Not really sure I see the big deal in having mangas in school. Are they killing people with them or something? First Huck Finn, now this, bah to the board of education you bunch of crazies. (Glad I'm in college haha)

    Honestly, I don't think they belong.

    Schools are supposed to be a place of learning. Only these days they're more concerned with being popular and socially "molding" the children. Just for once I would like to see a public School base a decision on acadamia and learning. As someone who reads manga I love it, but I see no academic application of it.

    yeah its really got no place in the learning system....however i think manga would be great as an afterschool activity of some sort....perhaps drawing class or something like that would be fine....

    Ah yes, Deering High School. I think I took the SAT's there once...

    Anyway, you all will have to take that news story with a grain of salt. Southern Maine is a news-poor land. The Press Herald has the incredible ability to take a non-story and blow it out of proportion because there is just nothing else to talk about.

    Also you need to realize that Maine (along with Vermont) is where East Coast extremists went to live after they realized they couldn't make a living being extremists. This poor, misguided soul represents the minority. The good folks of Greater Portland are much more open-minded than her. Of course she does go to Deering, which is probably half the problem right there...

    I hate it when these people say that mangas are less important than "normal books" "with pages of text" and are just there to prepare people for the "next level" which are supposedly those "normal" books. It doesn't consider mangas as another artform, just as something minor to be put aside or just used for "reluctant readers"...

    And I can tell you, from being a so big "normal" reader as manga reader, that some mangas have more morals, ask more questions and are cleverer than some books out there that are classified as the best of the "normal books"...
