cashhouseThis says that a lack of affordable housing also creates a lack of teachers. So some districts are supplementing teachers’ benefits with help toward rent or mortgage. Pulled from the article:

As South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard said in his recent State of the State address: “The quality of education suffers when the schools cannot be selective and have to hire from a limited pool.”

One of the major reasons districts are short on educators is housing.

And thanks, Kimberley, for the link.
