#SanFrancisco continues to ignore housing crisis – teachers are getting crushed

It’s been nearly a month since scores of teachers filled the Board of Supervisors chambers to tell heart-wrenching stories of their living conditions in one of the most expensive cities in the world.

Two- and three-hour daily commutes. In-law units with no kitchens. Couch surfing after an eviction.

City and district officials said they were moved by the teachers’ testimony and vowed to do better. They haven’t.

The teacher housing working group, composed of officials from the school district, teachers union and the Mayor’s Office of Housing, hasn’t met since the hearing and has no meetings scheduled.

Face it, city officials could care less about teachers. They only care about their rich pals in Silicon Valley and the Police Unions who bankroll their elections.

San Francisco’s teachers have joined the ranks of the homeless, the mentally ill, and people of color, as people to be despised by the city’s leaders.
