Some Pittsburgh Public Schools staff can’t live outside the city. Is it unfair or reasonable?

The district maintains that the rule, enforced and upheld by the school board, exists because staff become more embedded in the community and connected with families and students. Opponents to the rule say it’s discriminatory and impractical because it only applies to some staff, amid rising living costs in the city and stagnant wages.
