A teacher in Austria, lost his job after parents complained that he allowed his students to build a large penis during arts and crafts class.

The president of the Waidhofen an der Thaya School Board confirmed that the 49-year-old teacher, who was not identified, is no longer employed.

The incident happened recently, when the teacher told his students to build a project during arts and crafts class. The teacher was present in the classroom as his 12-year-old students build the model of a penis.

The teacher did not stop his students and encouraged them to complete their project. The students found their creation funny, and told their parents about it.

However, the parents were not amused and complained to the principal. The school board heard that the teacher had a history of making sexual comments in class.

He was suspended and his contract will not be renewed.
