Two Jeffs!

THERE’S A VAST difference between the image of Uncle Jeff and the reality of Master Jeff, says head of the English department of Alexandra School, Leslie Lett.
Testifying at the inquiry into the school, at the Gymnasium of the Garfield Sobers Complex yesterday, Lett said that the persona of “Master Jeff” was the one which principal Jeff Broomes adopted in his day-to-day running of the school.
This persona, added Lett, made him intolerant of views that did not coincide with his.
Lett drew as an example his concern over the recruitment of teachers when, at an interview of a prospective teacher in August 2010, he asked why head of the arts department Ms Jules was not present – as was customary with departments – to which Broomes replied: “I am not bound to invite any head of department to any interview.” (RJ)
