Knoxville (WVLT) - It's at the top of parent's minds in Knox County and tonight they're doing something about it.

Of course, we're talking about school re-zoning.

First, we just found out the school board has unanimously approved the 2007-2008 general purpose school fund budget.

Some good news there, but now the meeting will get interesting.

There's a crowd of several dozen parents here tonight and most of them have been blasting the board about the proposed rezoning.

Parents from Farragut and Powell make up the majority of the crowd, but they've made signs, and have come with ideas of their own for rezoning.

Parents are getting a chance tonight, for the first time, to talk to the board.
