San Francisco needs to hire 51 more teachers before the school year starts in two weeks but is having a difficult time finding candidates because of the high cost of living in the city. The average salary for a teacher in the city is under $70,000 a year, making housing tough to afford in a city where rents and home prices are soaring. According to the head of the local teachers union, housing is the top concern that she hears about from local teachers. [KTVU]
