TUCSON, Ariz. -- Tucson school district officials are expressing concern and taking action against several of the high school's so-called "confession'' pages.
According to the Arizona Daily Star, the pages allow students to post anonymously on Facebook.
The newspaper reported that many of the postings involve anti-gay remarks and sexually explicit comments about individual students.
Assistant superintendent Abel Morado said it's a serious matter because reputations are at stake and it's hard for people to defend themselves.
Tucson High's principal contacted Facebook to have a page for that school shut down, and another principal planned to do the same.
Morado said the district will work with high school principals on a coordinated response.
