A Taichung school is calling for applications for the post of school principal after all the candidates for the position were rejected by its teachers.
The Taichung Education Bureau announced the call for submissions after a majority of members at Taichung Municipal Taichung First Senior High School’s teachers’ association were found to be “unsupportive” of the two candidates.
The Taichung Municipal High School Principals Selection Committee on Friday said that the candidates — Taichung Municipal Home Economics and Commercial High School Principal Lin Yi-huei (林怡慧), and Taichung Municipal Wufeng Agricultural and Industrial High School Principal Chiang Yao-tsung (江耀宗) — were rejected in a vote held on Friday last week among association members to gauge their opinion of them.
The committee would open a second round of principal selection, which would begin on June 25, it said. [FULL STORY]
