Last Night's High School Rezoning Community Forum at Karns

Last night over 50 people attended the Community Forum hosted by Cindy Buttry. From all media reports it appears to have been a positive meeting with parents expressing support for helping to make Hardin Valley High School a great school within our Great American Community.

The only negative comment at Karns came from Doug Bataille, Knox County's Senior Director of Knox County Parks and Recreation. Bataille is an appointee of the Knox County Mayor and works at the Mayor's direction.

His comments recorded on the news report from Volunteer TV are criticizing the large number being rezoned from Karns to Hardin Valley and "only 27% coming out of Farragut" to Hardin Valley High School.

Does the Senior Director of Parks and Recreation have a bias against one community for another community within Knox County?

Check out the report from Volunteer TV, here.
