1. Section 4 of F.L. 52-12 The Atlasian Institute of Teachers Act is amended as follows:
Quote
SECTION 4. LICENSING EXAMINATION

Teachers licenses shall be awarded on the basis of an National Teacher's Licensing Examination (NTLE). The exam shall be administered through the regional branches. The passing score on the NTLE shall be designed to not admit more than 75% of applicants.

Prospective teachers shall apply to their regional bureaus to take an NTLE on one of three levels: There will be Junior NTLEs (for teachers of kindergarten to sixth grade), Intermediate NTLEs (for teachers of sixth grade to eighth grade), and Senior NTLEs (for high school teachers). There will be two types of NTLEs at the Junior and Intermediate levels: One class of tests for foreign language teachers (with language-specific content for each test), and one common test for non-language teachers. At the senior level, tests will be completely subject-specific. Each examination shall be subject to yearly approval from the Department of Internal Affairs and the regional boards of education.

Broadly, the AIT will consider all regional curriculums to administer consolidated teaching proficiency tests. Each NTLE shall test the applicants’ familiarity with basic course concepts, conflict resolution techniques in the classroom, and sensitivity.

2. A Section 5 shall be added to F.L. 52-12 to read:
Quote
SECTION 5: ALTERNATE METHODS OF LICENSURE

Each region shall retain the ability to provide for licensure of teachers practicing in the region through alternate or additional requirements and/or methods according the law of the respective region, and may recognize licensure acquired by other regions through such alternate means.
