SF schools giving teachers raises without revenue to pay for them

In a letter sent to SFUSD Superintendent Vincent Matthews on Friday, Mayor London Breed called the timing of the wage increase an issue of “great concern,” given unresolved questions about when the money generated by Proposition G will be available, or if it’ll be available at all.
