Spotlight: San Francisco Affordability Crisis

Another heartbreaking story of an educator working multiple jobs just to make ends meet, this three minute video featuring Lick Middle School teacher Laney Corda is definitely worth a watch. “I’m 27 years old, I’m five years out of college, I’m working four jobs and I can’t make all my payments on time—that’s not okay,” says Laney. Thanks to the Teacher Salary Project for putting this together.


In the video, Buena Vista Horace Mann K-8 teacher Norman Zelaya speaks eloquently about how the affordability crisis is impacting his school and his community.
