A teacher at a San Antonio, Texas high school is being accused by a parent for saying his son is gay and that his girlfriend is a "cover" to a classroom full of students. 

The dad of the student, who will remain anonymous to protect his family's privacy, is reportedly looking into legal recourse saying the accusation has led to bullying at school according to LGBTQ Nation.

“When you say something like that in open class kids are going to talk and they’re going to go with it,” he told News 4.

The father says that his son is straight. 

“She assumed it because of the way he looks,” said the dad. “He’s a well-mannered kid, takes care of himself.”

He received an apology from the teacher after filing a complaint, but that isn't enough he says, he also wants her to lose her job. 

“She’s apologized but I didn’t want an apology. What’s done is done so there’s nothing she can take back.”

A spokesperson for the school said, “We are aware of the allegations currently under investigation as the student’s parent goes through a grievance process.”

"Gay or straight is not the problem here," the father said. "The problem is the teacher making a comment causing bullying in a school."
