Some parents are upset after a teacher sent home a controversial letter without clearing it with administration.

The Keller Middle School teacher talks about his fears under a Trump presidency and how it may affect him and his students.

"I would like to say it isn't about me, but in a way, it is. I know I am a white male, and that allots me a significant amount of of privilege that many of my friends and most of my students and their families do not have. But as a gay man, this affects me," the letter reads in part.

The Clark County School District says the teacher has been dealt with. An apology letter will be sent home with students Friday.
