NSW government secretly paid millions to victims of a teacher it admits was a paedophile

Exclusive: At least 14 Indigenous men received out-of-court settlements after being abused by teacher, principal and school inspector Cletus O’Connor.

The department has never publicly disclosed the settlements, which in some cases included confidentiality clauses preventing disclosure of the value of the payouts. Nor has it acknowledged the existence of a serial paedophile in the public school system, a step that might have encouraged others to come forward.
