RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Federal numbers show that Virginia's teachers are paid more than the national average. But educators in some areas of the state are paid significantly less.
    
The Bureau of Labor Statistics says Virginia elementary school teachers receive average annual wages of $58,510, compared with a national average of $56,130. Middle school teachers in Virginia are paid average annual wages of $58,180, compared with a national average of $56,280. And secondary school teachers in the state receive average annual wages of $60,180, compared with the national average of $57,770.
    
Among Virginia's 10 metropolitan areas, only the Washington region that includes Arlington and Alexandria has wages for all teachers that were significantly more than the national average. Teachers at all levels in Lynchburg, Richmond and Roanoke are paid significantly less than the national average.
