News site: Klaus’s son quitting as head of private school

The son of former president Václav Klaus is to quit as director of Prague’s PORG private secondary school, reported. The news website said that Václav Klaus Jr. was stepping down after 15 years at the well-known school due to a dispute with Martin Roman, the former boss of power giant CEZ who is its main sponsor and chairman of its executive board. The two have reportedly clashed over the institution’s direction, teacher appraisals and pupil selection procedures.
