According to the portal czechposition.com (http://www.ceskapozice.cz) Josef Dobeš, former Minister of Education, resigned from his position.
Officially the resignation followed decision to cut down on the Ministry of Education’s budget, which would mean according to the former Minister “unacceptable cut in teachers’ salaries”. Czech media, however, speculate that financial cuts at the Ministry were just an excuse for Dobeš to resign. Former Minister was criticized for inefficient management of the European funds. Another criticism towards former Minister came from academics for his attempts to reform the higher education in the Czech Republic.
