Leroy Green’s Teaching Records Located

Leroy Green

On Monday night, you heard well-known educator Leroy Green speak out about missing records of his teaching career. Green told us that thirty-four of his forty-three years of teaching documents could not be found. He retired back in November and those missing records were affecting the processing of his full benefits. Well, tonight Green told us that it appears to have been just a clerical error because his records have been located. He said that the Teaching Services Commission and the Public Service Office were helpful. We spoke with him earlier today.

“What that says to me is that whoever is the record keeper or person responsible at the Ministry of Education, I reckon that person really did not do due diligence because if I recall rightly, when you move from one Ministry or one Department to the next, the new Ministry should request records from the old one. So, that means over decades no one had been requesting the transfer of documents. I am glad to say that they were found. But I have to say that my dilemma is not over yet because I stop working on the thirty-first of August, so I am looking forward – hoping and praying that I don’t have to come out and say anything else and by thirty-first of August my money has been deposited into my account.  I don’t see this as politics. I see it as particular people not doing their job.I would still like to encourage other teachers like myself, keep track of your records so that you don’t get the shock like I got to find out that your documents had been lost. As to the parts of gratuity and pension, there is still some degree of uncertainty within me, that in the period of three short months that everything will be completed.”

    Glad it worked out for Mr. Green, but its a caution to all teachers, and government workers in general to keep all you paperwork from your employment. He might have been able to reconstruct his work history from his tax forms, but a lot of people don’t keep those past five years. But knowing the state of government record keeping, protect yourselves!
