Increasing Teachers' Wages in San Francisco
Let's keep teachers in San Francisco! Teachers are flooding out of San Francisco because they don't make enough to keep up with the housing market. San Francisco has overtaken even Manhattan, in housing prices. SFUSD teachers earn much less than their counterparts in cities with lower housing prices. For example, Berkeley teachers make, on average, six thousand more than SF teachers. However, Berkeley’s average rent is thirteen thousand dollars lower than San Francisco’s rent. This isn't fair for San Francisco teachers and students, who are losing all these great teachers to SF’s highly competitive housing market.
