CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia plans to offer more education courses at its center in northern Virginia to accommodate the region's large teacher population.
 
The Falls Church site now offers five programs, including master's degrees in special education.  Officials with U.Va.'s Curry School of Education tell The Daily Progress that they envision a doubling or even tripling of credential-based degrees, and master's programs could expand even further over the next several years. 
 
Northern Virginia is home to the largest concentration of the state's teachers by a wide margin. Several of the area's school divisions have routinely been hiring more than 1,000 new teachers annually, because of both growth and turnover.
