WIMBLEDON, N.D. – Dozens of parents and students in the Barnes County North School District say they're fed up with the school board and want a recall election.

Parents say problems have been going on for years, including micromanagement of administration, not listening to parents and an "air of arrogance."

They also say they have issues with members of the board not attending school functions including graduation.

Curt Brown, who spoke for the group of concerned students and parents, believes board actions led to the upcoming resignation of Mark Lindahl, much-loved superintendent, high school principal and activities director.

"What the teachers and some staff have told me, there's a lot of micromanaging going on. They've been talked to repeatedly by administration and they're just not interested in changing," Brown said.

Board members wouldn't comment because the board president, who was absent, is their spokesperson.

Lindahl wouldn't comment, only to say part of the reason he's resigning is to spend more time with his grandchildren.
