This topic has come up a number of times previously but now is being explored by the DFE. Who would want to live at their workplace? OK, new teachers may want some temporary housing until they get settled but as a permanent solution to recruitment? If you move jobs you lose your home You can't get away from colleagues you may not wish to associate with after school Teachers are being Ghettoised Subsidised housing is a good excuse for keeping teacher's pay low It says little about the status of teaching that if you want to teach that you have to take such low pay you can't afford to house yourself The solution is to make teaching a properly rewarded profession so that teachers can afford their own homes - flying pig alert!
