State budget cuts has future teachers considering out of state jobs - Scott Evans, KWCH

College and University graduations are just a few months away. That means college seniors are looking for jobs. At Wichita State there are 248 students this year and another 250 next year who want to become teachers. With everything going on in the legislature, many students are worried about their future. Christin Covel is a student teacher at Coleman Middle School. She realized a few years ago that teaching is what she is supposed to do with her life, yet she is one of the many who are worried: "It's scary, but this is what I'm supposed to be doing, so I'm trying not to let fear eat me alive," said Covel. Her fear stems from what is happening with the state's education budget. A statewide budget shortfall has lawmakers considering a wide range of bills that impact district budgets.
