California’s state legislature has passed a bill designed to allow school districts across the state to lease school district-owned property for the purpose of building special public housing projects for teachers and, of course, school administrators.

The bill, Senate Bill 1413, passed the California State Assembly on Wednesday and now awaits the signature of Gov. Jerry Brown, reports San Francisco television station KRON-TV.

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.

The city of San Francisco has approved $2 million in funding for the new teachers-only public housing projects. – READ MORE
