— After months of debate, construction on a controversial school site is under way in Wake Forest.

Parents had objected to the site near the Dubois Center saying the neighborhood has too much crime.

Wake County will use three modular schools next year while it builds new schools.

The school system blames overcrowding and higher than expected population growth.
