A teacher shortage in Virginia has many educators concerned about the quality of education that will be available to students in the near future.

(( This is a class in the College of Education at Radford University.
But only a couple of the students in this class are planning on being teachers.
Mary Allison Fitzgerald is one of them but she says many students are turned off from the profession because of the low pay.

[RUNS= 8]
[OUT Q=starting off]


The average salary for a teacher in Virginia with a bachelors degree starts around 25-thousand dollars and reaches 40-thousand only after more than 25 years of service.
And the increase in the number of school aged children and the lowering of retirement age for teachers from 55 to 50 are also factors in the shortage.
Dr. Robert Small, Jr., the dean of education at Radford says one of the ways the state is filling that gap - is by allowing unlicensed teachers to train on the job.

((Last week Chip, a life long wearer of eyeglasses, ventured to Northern Virginia and became the latest athlete to have lasik surgery. Lasers reshaped his cornea and corrected his vision problems in a ten minute procedure. ((CHIP SULLIVAN/ASHLEY PLANTATION PRO:))
These are the first golf balls Chip has hit since having the surgery. He's pleased with the results and hopes life without glasses will eventually pay big dividends on the putting green. ((CHIP SULLIVAN:)) ((MIKE STEVENS:)) ((CHIP SULLIVAN:))
