MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - Parents are outraged over a plan to invest $20 million dollars into Shelby County suburban schools that plan to leave the district.
"Don't start something you can't finish, and spend $20 million dollars you don't have," said concerned Shelby County Schools parent Audrey Grossman.
Grossman could not believe her eyes when she scoured the new school budget.
The budget includes $10 million to fix up Millington Central High's Vo-Tech and gym, and $9.1 million to replace the Germantown High auditorium and alarm system.
"Why should the county system spend $20 million on improvements to schools that are almost certainly not going to be in the county system?" said Grossman.
The improvements would not be done until March 2015.
