Voting is now closed.  The AYEs are 5, and the NAYs are 0.  The AYEs have it and the amendments are agreed to.  The bill now reads as follows, and is brought to a final vote.  Members will vote AYE, NAY, or ABSTAIN.  This will be a 48 hour vote:

Quote
Teaching Reform Act

Section 1(a)
Public education teaching payment shall be based on the following:
30% Education acquired by degree, in any area. The greater amount of degrees and the more advanced degree will result in a higher salary.
35% Years spent teaching in public, private, charter schools, or universities. The longer a teacher has spent teaching, the greater their salary.
30% Regional test score results for their students. The higher the regional test scores the students they teach score, the greater their salary.
5% Former occupation related to teaching. For teachers who have had occupations related to their current teaching (like an engineering now teaching math), they will have a greater salary.

Section 1(b)
"Teachers who teach specialised classes for students with recognised Special Educational needs and Learning Disabilities are not subject to the pay structure in Section 1(a) and the following structure is deemed to apply;

30% Education acquired by degree, in any area. The greater amount of degrees and the more advanced degree will result in a higher salary.
35% Years spent teaching in public, private, charter schools, or universities. The longer a teacher has spent teaching, the greater their salary.
30% Years spent teaching, volunteering and undertaking additional study in relation to Special Educational Needs and/or working with children with Learning Disabilities.
5% Former occupation related to teaching. For teachers who have had occupations related to their current teaching."

Section 2
The starting teacher salary will be $35,000 annually and will be between this amount and $65,000 for any other given year based on Section 1’s formula. The teaching salary will be based on a sliding scale

Section 3
Each year there will be an annual test developed by the education department of the Mideast Government for grades 3-10 in the areas of math, writing, reading, science, and social studies. This regional test will be used to determine the 30% of the salary based on regional testing scores for teachers. Teachers who teach Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) will be scored on student’s results if they teach 11th or 12th grade students whom will not take the regional test due to local district requirements. Scores of the regional test will only affect the teacher teaching in their specific area (an English teacher is only scored on Writing and Reading). With the agreement of the Educational Department, individual schools or school districts may be permitted to vary the content of the annual test to take into account specific educational environments or circumstances on an annual basis.

Section 4
Teachers who do not teach a subject related to Math, Writing, Reading, Science, and Social Studies, and/or do not teach an AP or IB class, will not be subject to the 30% teaching salary category based on the regional test scores. Teachers who fall into the Section 4 category will only have the ability to achieve a maximum of $60,000 annually for salary.

Seems pretty straight forward.

...
It's great that you expressed your concerns, your views, and submitted amendments for this bill before voting Nay to accomplish absolutely no education reform and innovation for failing and failed public schools.

One small grammatical error.

I ask unanimous consent that the word "be" be inserted into Section 2 between the words "will" and "between", but that this amendment be made retroactive to before voting started.

Voting is now closed.  The AYEs are 3, and the NAYs are 1, with 1 not voting.  The AYEs have it, and the bill is passed.  The bill is now passed on to the Governor for his signature or veto.
