VIDEO: I AM NOT A TEST SCORE- Baltimore's Youth Dreamers

I am NOT a Test Score!

This video was created by the students in the Youth Dreamers, Inc.
( to accompany a book they are publishing called I Am Not a Test Score: Lessons Learned from Dreaming
This is a recently published collaborative book about what the young people and their adult allies learned from dreaming and building Baltimore's only youth-run youth center. It includes lessons learned inside and outside classrooms that were not controlled by standardized tests. Through this accompanying video, we give voice to other youth in Baltimore who share how they want to be taught, how they feel they should be judged, and what inspires them...beyond standardized tests.

  1. I have to agree, they are obsessed with assessment. In my opinion, it ruins the very purpose of education. Students worry about grades and test results instead of advancing in knowledge. Some qualified essays writers know requirements and actually want to change the system for better. It's crucial to help students develop necessary skills and help them prepare for adulthood. Sadly, education system cares only for an average student and does nothing to support them all. Let's hope this will change in the future. Students deserve decent education!
