has once again been placed in the center of a school related controversy; however, unlike previous rumbles, this time it comes out a winner. Peggy Salazar, a mother of an Albuquerque Volcano Vista High School student (and no I didn’t make that name up), has recently advocated that all schools in Albuquerque should ban the Death Note manga from all their schools. So a committee held a meeting regarding this issue, and voted unanimously against banning the book.
A member of the committee said it best: “High school age kids do grapple with questions about justice and morality, and whether civilization, or the societies of which they are a part of are making good decisions." Check out the KRQE story about this historic event here.
