GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL) - Bullying in Greene County Schools - we first brought you the story of parents reaching out to us with concerns for their children after, they say, their calls for help from administration, went unanswered.

News Channel 11 sat in on the Thursday night school board meeting that ran late. Two mothers that requested to speak were given the option to wait into the later hours or come back during next month's meeting.

They chose to have their voices heard now, their accounts triggering disagreements amongst a board where one member, found herself on the outs.

Deborah Johnson says the focus shifted off the children, to her actions - and reason for speaking out to News Channel 11. Debate over how mothers Christan Serrianne and Missy Bryant's situations were handled, was on display.

We'll have more from the heated meeting today on News Channel 11 and here on WJHL.com.
