Instead of paying teachers enough to afford the kind of housing that the average Angeleno can secure LAUSD is now building “affordable housing” for teachers. This economic stratification — or segregation — of teachers is ridiculous. If teachers were paid what they’re worth, they’d all be living in mansions. Bravo to LAUSD for taking action to provide decent housing close to schools, but this is an absurd symptom of our country’s very screwed-up priorities.
