This looks like the vote on S3M-4007.1

The description in the bulletin on 2009-04-30 is:

*S3M-4007.1 Keith Brown: Education—As an amendment to motion (S3M-4007) in the name of Margaret Smith, leave out from "the index" to end and insert "spending on education has risen by more than 40% since the advent of devolution; further notes that, despite a decade of investment, standards of attainment and achievement have only been maintained while key international competitors have improved; welcomes the recent report by HM Inspectorate of Education, Improving Scottish Education 2005-2008, highlighting the need for further and faster improvement in our education system; believes that the focus on inputs under previous administrations masked the lack of significant improvement on standards of attainment and achievement; further believes that the reform of the curriculum is a critical step in improving standards of attainment, and calls on the Scottish Government to maintain progress towards implementation of the Curriculum for Excellence." Supported by: Fiona Hyslop*
