Village of Jerome Battles Internet Hoax About Middle School That Doesn't Exist


The village of Jerome wants to spread the word… it doesn’t have a middle school that’s requiring children to pray to Allah every day.

 

In fact, it doesn’t have a middle school at all.

 

But that fact hasn’t deterred some people who have been calling the village to complain… after falling for an Internet hoax.

 

A spoof site called “National Report” posted an article last week claiming that Westhills Middle School, located in Jerome, had instituted Muslim Appreciation Month, and would require students to wear Muslim clothing and recite Islamic prayers.

 

There is no such school and no such observance… but the story has continued to spread, prompting the village to issue a statement over the weekend trying to debunk the rumor.
