Mark North is Challenged to a Debate: April 9th on the Darryl Parks Show

Rick McPherson did the unthinkable. He went on the sacred airwaves of 700 WLW during the Darryl Parks show and challenged Mark North, superintendent of the Lebanon School System to an on-the-air debate over the actions taken by the Lebanon School Board to approve union contracts prior to Governor Kasich signing the S.B.5 bill which would eliminate collective bargaining agreements. If North had held tight he could have used S.B.5 to drive down the costs of his district and avoid a school levy.

It was a bold challenge given by a man who knows that the Lebanon Superintendent is guilty of subverting the confidence of the taxpayers in the school district while at the same time encouraging them to pass a levy on the May ballot. Listen to that interview and challenge here. Darryl Parks upon hearing this information declared his support toward defeating the Lebanon School Levy with the very powerful 50,000 Watts of The Big One radio station, one of the most powerful radio stations in the country.

Mark North has two choices. He can ignore the challenge and attempt to point his finger at those opposed to the increase in taxes as simple “bomb throwers.” He’ll do that because he doesn’t have the guts to face McPherson on WLW during the Darryl Parks show of April 9th. North knows he’s wrong and has been caught doing the unspeakable, making deals with the union prior to passage of a controversial bill and proving his loyalty to the unions, and not the tax payers of the district. He also knows that he and the school board members are guilty of violating the “sunshine law” which prohibits discussions and deals such as what transpired prior to the last Lebanon School Board meeting.

If Mr. North were innocent of such allegations, he’ll gladly be prepared to go on the Big One to defend the reputation of his district under his leadership. Because in the court of public opinion, silence means your guilty. The branch of truth has officially been extended for him to defend these actions for all to hear and to settle any misconceptions the public may have about the situation.

But, the video of the meeting speaks otherwise. Unless he can prove otherwise in a debate with McPherson on Darryl Parks show the proof of the despicable acts committed under his leadership will be confirmed in his silence.

Stay tuned, because we’re just getting started.

This isn’t a witch hunt to those of you that wish to think so. This is a demand of honesty, and for the system to work as it is supposed to. This is a demand to not perform illegal activity behind closed doors, and then ask tax payers to pay for incompetence. That’s all it is. If it’s painful, well……too bad. Your public officials and your boss want to know why you behaved the way you have, and you owe an explanation. Why not provide that explanation on the 50,000 Watt FLAME THROWER, 700 WLW for all to hear?

Declare your innocence…..if you can. After all, anyone that makes $149,937 a year should have no problem talking to half a million people over 38 states and part of Canada. Show up on April 9th and the debate will occur without a representative from the Lebanon School System.

The choice is yours…………………

  1. MR. NORTH,
    FIRST A LITTLE HUMOR AMIDST THIS VEXATION.
    GROUCHO MARX ONCE QUIPPED: “WHO ARE YOU GOING TO BELIEVE, ME OR YOUR OWN EYES?”…
    WELL, IT’S TIME TO PROVE US WRONG MR. NORTH.
    DEBATE MR. MCPHERSON. GET YOURSELF PREPARED, YOU HAVE A WEEK. THAT SHOULD BE AMPLE TIME. IN FACT YOU’VE HAD SIX YEARS TO PREPARE. YOU MUST DO THIS, YOU HAVE NO CHOICE. IT IS YOU WITH HAT IN HAND CRYING POOR. YOU ARE THE ONE ASKING FOR AN ADDITIONAL 6.5 MILLION DOLLARS AFTER THE TAPPED OUT TAXPAYERS OF LEBANON JUST REWARDED YOUR MALFEASANCE WITH LAST NOVEMBERS PASSAGE OF YOUR CONTINUING LEVY. YOU ARE THE FACE OF LEBANON CITY SCHOOLS. YOU ARE THE ONE WHO SITS IN THESE BOARD MEETINGS TELLING US HOW GREAT YOUR TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS ARE. DEFEND YOURSELF, AND THEM. DEFEND YOUR DECISION TO ADD ADDITIONAL YEARS TO OUR TREASURERS CONTRACT GIVING HIM JOB SECURITY AD INFINITUM. DEFEND YOUR DECISION TO SIGN THIS UNION CONTRACT A WEEK PRIOR TO SB5.
    TIME IS RUNNING SHORT MR. NORTH.
    LET ME PUT IT TO YOU ANOTHER WAY OLD FRIEND.
    EITHER WAY, THE DEBATE GOES ON WITH OR WITHOUT YOU.
    YOUR MOVE DUDE.
    KINDEST REGARDS, CHRIS MARTIN

  2. Darryl asks why the Amanda district used cutting school lunches as leverage against the children. The reason is “supplemental contracts.” No teacher will do one thing outside of the normal “classroom” day without getting extra pay. I was told that meeting the kindergartners at the school bus door is a “supplemental” pay. How sad! These people that claim they are “for the children” don’t give a whip about their safety getting off of the school bus.

  3. Mr. North,

    I can’t even believe I am going to say this after the blatant disregard for me personally and to this whole community…but, I pity you. You underestimated the “bomb throwers” as you call us. We are all good people doing what we believe is the right thing. Something that eluded you while you were in Executive Session, no? You must defend your stance if you can. If you truly believe that this levy had to be put in place AND you exhausted all other options even those from the people of this town, then go on WLW and say so. Of course, that would be a lie. Your allegiance was to your union brothers and sisters, and I hope they are of comfort to you. I’d hate to lie in that bed.
    Not only is your reputation on the line (that can be rebuilt elsewhere), but Honor and Integrity. Without those two things… you’re just the shell of a man.

  4. I’ve lived in Lebanon for 25 years. The school board is supposed to represent the community in negotiations with the NEA.
    Almost every member of the school board is either a retired teacher, principle or married to one of them. How can they honestly represent the community?
    Just for fun, nation wide, the average school system spend less than 30 cents of every dollar it recieves on actual bills to run the school. The rest goes to the superintendents office.

    1. Don, you have hit it right in the head. All these people are some how related. Just look at Lebanon School board. Donna Norris school board president, her husband is the highest paid teacher, isn’t he a lucky guy? If you look close you can find people related all up and down the public sector. We have to cut out the money to these people now!

  5. Mr. North,

    We ask you attend the Lebanon Tea Party monthly meeting, April 11, 2011, 7pm Warren County Fairgrounds Grandstand.

    Please respresent your school district, what you are compensated to do. Explain the necessity of this levy and justify your actions with the union contracts you renewed prior to the passage of SB5

  6. WILL MARK NORTH ATTEND THE TEA PARTY MEETING AND DEFEND HIS NEED FOR $6.5 MILLION MORE OF OUR DOLLARS OR WILL HE AND THE BOARD AND OTHERS BE IN SAN FRANCISCO AT THE NATIONAL SCHOOL BOARDS ASSOC. ANNUAL CONFERENCE? SOME OF YOU NEED TO CHECK THE AMOUNTS YOU PAY FOR THE BOARD AND ADMINISTRATORS TO TRAVEL TO MAGNIFICENT TRAVEL DESTINATIONS. FOR EXAMPLE, THERE IS AN ADMINISTRATORS MEETING BEING HELD IN BARCELONA SPAIN IN JULY. ARE ANY OF OUR LOCAL ELITISTS ATTENDING THAT CONFERANCE? FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW WHEN VOTING FOR A LEVY.

    I DO KNOW THAT LAKOTA’S FORMER SUPERINTENDENT MADE A TRIP TO CHINA WITH OTHER LOCALS. NEEDED TO LEARN THEIR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM!!! WHY?????

  7. All I can say is THANK YOU Rick McPherson and Darryl Parks! It is about time someone opened the curtains and allowed the people of Lebanon to see what is really going on in our schools. It is no longer about our kids…. it is totally about the teachers and administrators paychecks!

    1. Mel…THANK YOU!! Thank you for the guts to come forward and speak your mind. I wish more would do so on either side. Where’s the debate on these pages???
      It’s clear…those that are freaked out by judgement will never speak, and those like Phil and other new ones who know what’s so broken have much to say.
      Please comment often Mel.
