This is a cry for help: Horgen Council threatens with resignation

The allegations against the Horgen education President Carla Howard (independent) weigh heavy. The other members accuse her of dereliction of duty violations, lack of transparency and lack of leadership. Since about a year of school care and local Council, to which she belongs by virtue of his office to try, in conversations, to establish meetings and a retreat, a form of regulated cooperation. Mid-2019 to both authorities came Horgen to the district Council. They asked him to settle the case. The procedure is still in progress.

Under the slogan "Wake up call" has the Council Horgen now, on Tuesday afternoon, a short-term media briefing convened. The facial expression of community President Theo Leuthold (SVP) was knocked down, as he opened the conversation in the meeting room of the municipal Council. He, the kids happy and laughing, opened the conference with an unusually weak voice: "We have to show the population the Situation." The cooperation in the Council and in the school's care had become with Carla Loretz "incredibly difficult". "We can't keep it longer under cover."

The Situation is for the local councils and the school nurse so dramatic and the method that you resort to this last means. You seriously consider, your office. All of the schools and local Council members have written a personal statement to the attention of the district Council, why are you with Carla Loretz no longer can work together. Hold that you submit your resignation, if in the foreseeable future, nothing will change. "We want to say it's not a threat," says Leuthold. "It is not, however, endure until the end of legislature." Not least, the health authorities of the members stand on the game.

Blockade, and cost more

Theo Leuthold says, the school Horgen is a dysfunctional System. The school President is acting in the office, passive, and have no leadership skills. Because they communicate non-transparent, incorrectly, or not at all, whether lost the trust. This made it difficult to make Decisions and implement projects. Their behavior paralyze the administration, and causing the "relevant costs". The Council could and no longer wanted to bear the responsibility for the Situation. He fears that it is only a matter of time until the leadership vacuum has a negative impact on the operation of the school.

school President Carla Loretz leave all offers, to support you, to bounce off. "We have been trying for a year to find a solution," said Leuthold. The spiral turn but further down. "We are no step further." The situation was not only technically, but also emotionally very stressful, because you could not trust Carla Loretz, holds Riedtmann. You show no insight.

Carla Loretz says on request, it rejects the accusations of the municipal Council. You have given the Council a comprehensive opinion, and I trust that he'll handle the situation. In terms of content, you say to the allegations during the procedure nothing. In Other respects, it is amazing that two complete authorities threatened because of a single Person who had allegedly done everything wrong, with the resignation.

she keeps the school functioning. You also fear that because of the current Situation teachers or principals to terminate.
