I would imagine that this type of activity is grounds for dismissal and proper conduct should be re-addressed at the least.If the principal did not take appropriate measures to inquire further or to re-advise the teacher suspected of inappropriate conduct, then they will also be reasonably held accountable for the situation. Though in most cases this is not an apparent or part of the problem; it is of some value...I might be off base here, but from all I see it is a matter of the OP being judgmental about a relationship that s/he has a religious bias against. That is just my observation from the tone of the post.
Ask him how he feels about it and don't try to persuade him to change his feelings.
Instead, ask him if there are circumstances in which he would be OK with the relationship—for example, if everything were to be kept confidential.
Consider how your child will feel if things do not work out between you and his teacher.
If you do decide to go ahead and begin dating your child's teacher, you may consider moving your child to another school if and when the relationship becomes problematic.
On the other hand, giving your child special treatment because of your relationship status can cause other parents or teachers to complain.
