It's no secret that housing prices in San Francisco are way too expensive for most people, and unfortunately teachers and other low-paid professionals are not exempt. For the last 20 years, there has been a plan to build housing for teachers. However, nothing has happened until Mayor Ed Lee learned of a math teacher with a masters degree and salary of $65k living in a homeless shelter after being evicted from her home. Now, he's committed $44 million in city money to build between 130-150 housing units for teachers.
