Zurich school president Rodriguez becomes headmaster and receives severance pay

The election of a new headmaster in the Falletsche secondary school in the city of Zurich caused a lot of discussion. The reason: The newly elected headmaster Roberto Rodriguez currently serves as president of the school authority for the SP – and this is responsible for the election of the headmaster.

The fact that the committee has elected its current president as the new headmaster causes Vetterliwirtschaft allegations. Especially in politics the outcry is great, reports the “Tages-Anzeiger”. The president of the urban Green Party, Felix Moser, says the school authorities had no choice but to choose their boss. Other politicians speak of “nepotism” and “self-favoring”.
