Education Department faces lawsuits over claims paedophile teacher was shuffled between schools

Article image for Education Department faces lawsuits over claims paedophile teacher was shuffled between schools

The Education Department is facing lawsuits which could run into the millions amid allegations it shuffled a known paedophile teacher between schools.

Robert Morris, now 71, was a primary school teacher between 1966 and 1980.

He taught at schools in the country and later Melbourne’s outer-eastern suburbs.

The Age has reported 10 civil lawsuits are now in the courts, accusing the department of moving the teacher between schools, even though his activities had been reported to police, principals and senior department officials.
