It’s 7 a.m., 54° and headed to 61°. The rain is supposed to end today and resume tomorrow. Details for the next 10 days are here.

Feeling wonkish? Take a look at the California Budget Project’s annual look at the Governor’s proposed budget for 2014/2015. There are a lot of charts to digest, but some interesting analysis. The policy group sees the budget as falling short in addressing increasing inequality. You can get it here. 

Self-improvement. Try Google’s new online data interpretation class for civilians. It starts on March 18, according to TechCrunch. 

No houses for teachers. Not in San Francisco anyway, according to Curbed SF. Although it would be interesting to know how many teachers already own their own home here.

    The purpose of the State budget is not to address inequality. The purpose is to provide a budget for spending along with an explanation of how that spending is to be paid for.

    Any debate on whether inequality is a problem and whether it needs to be addressed would be elsewhere. I suspect the source is biased.

    To the other, you ask how many teachers own their own home. I don’t know either but I’d guess a fair number. I know three teachers and they all own their own home. Often their spouse makes good money as well – nothing new or surprising about it taking two incomes to buy in SF.

    The other obvious question is whether it matters. Teachers can commute as easily as any other class of worker.
