Ms Adams responded by saying,
"Let the proceedings begin"
Sunday Times Headlines. December 23rd 2012.
TEACHING staff in WA public schools have been caught pouring a drink can over a student, simulating smacking a pupil and revealing their underwear to students and colleagues.
Of the 69 cases of misconduct involving inappropriate behaviour, 28 are still under investigation. Of the 41 finalised complaints, 22 were substantiated, requiring disciplinary action or improvement action, such as counselling or training, or both. Fourteen complaints, including one that a "staff member has been invading a colleague's personal space", were not proven.
Three complaints that a staff member did not adequately deal with a parental complaint were referred to the Blaxell Inquiry, which investigated the response of officials to allegations of sexual abuse at St Andrew's Hostel in Katanning.
Education Department director-general Sharyn O'Neill said the Department took allegations of staff misconduct "very seriously".
"We want to make every public school the safest and best environment it can be for our students and staff and there is no ambiguity when it comes to removing staff who present a risk to children," she said.
She said the Department had been running accountable and ethical decision-making training for staff.
Ms O'Neill said there were 541 allegations of misconduct in 2011-12 compared with 528 misconduct complaints the year before.
All allegations of misconduct are reported to the Corruption and Crime Commission.

"An unchanged melody." Simply more proof that a cult mentality exists in the education department, one so entrenched that it doesn't look like ever changing for the better. Little has changed from the time Karen Adams became one of their victims to now.
2003 to 2013, Ten years!!!!
If teachers are found guilty of misconduct they are simply posted to another school in the hope that their record doesn't follow them. eg. Wells, Macgregor, Senbergs and Goodwin.
We remind our readers that Sharyn O'Neill is paid $1,538 a day. She is the person employed as the Director General of the WA Education Department.
It is worth a mention that because of their unprincipled behaviour Wells, Macgregor and Senbergs no longer teach at Kalbarri District High School, all moved to other schools to be given the opportunity to create new victims.
