Rezoning Forum in Farragut

Knoxville (WVLT) - Splitting up families was one of the big topics Monday night at a public forum about about school rezoning.

This forum took place at Farragut High School. Several parents turned out.

One of the main concerns, as we talked about for a few weeks, is having the children forced to attend different schools.

School board members continue to say they hope rezoning the students will help alleviate overcrowding.

"I just don't agree with that. It think the siblings ought to be able to stay together. Both have been through the Farragut school systems since kindergarten," parent Brenda Selecman said.

We'll continue to follow this story and all the upcoming public forums.
