Wichita Some parents in Wichita are expressing alarm about a Facebook page that spreads malicious gossip about students at a middle school.
The slam page, called "Brooks Trash," is apparently the work of someone at Wichita's Brooks Middle School. Student Emari Reed tells KWCH-TV that users upload pictures to the page, then add nasty captions.
Michele Zahner, of the USD 259 safety services department, says administrators interviewed several students and got close to the person responsible. The site was reported to Facebook and taken down, but showed up again.
Facebook is blocked on all school computers, meaning students can only access it at home or by cellphone. Zahner says the district encourages parents to monitor their children's Facebook activity and talk to them about being good citizens online.
