A teacher reportedly outed one of her students and said he is using his girlfriend as a cover.

The teacher at Nixon-Smiley High School, in Texas, was teaching a class when she allegedly told all her pupils – including the student’s girlfriend – that he was gay, News 4 San Antonio reported.

Following the remarks, the boy is reportedly being bullied and his father has filed a complaint over the incident and an investigation has been launched.

His father said: “When you say something like that in open class, kids are going to talk and they’re going to go with it.

“Gay or straight is not the problem here. The problem is the teacher making a comment causing bullying in a school.”

Defending his son, the father has called for the teacher to lose her job for her comments.

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