California Bill Will Allow Special Teachers-Only Public Housing Projects In San Francisco

education should be free

While the bill allows any California school district to build public housing units for teachers and school personnel, it is aimed especially at the housing situation for teachers in San Francisco. Supporters of the bill say that teachers’ salaries in the City by the Bay are too low to afford rent in the city plagued by decades of government-mandated rent control.

Over the next five years, school officials also want to subsidize rental property for 100 teachers. They hope to provide down-payment loans to 200 more.

Additionally, plans are in the works to pony up $250,000 for counseling services for teachers who cannot figure out how to rent or purchase apartments or houses by themselves.

    If teacher’s don’t know how to rent or buy a home then they are being paid too much.

    So all OTHER public employees there CAN live affordably? That would of course be news to them. Because they don’t think so. Hopefully SF will start paying all their public sector workers the quarter million dollars a year they each deserve. It should only take a doubling of taxes to pay for it and a quadrupling of taxes to fund their pensions.

    Problem solved.

    Solid confirmation that a large proportion of teachers are downright stupid. Alarming confirmation of how communist the west coast has become.
