I Am Not a Test Score

Youth Dreamers
Students & community members

This video was created by the students in the Youth Dreamers, Inc. (www.youthdreamers.org) to accompany a book they are publishing called I Am Not a Test Score: Lessons Learned from Dreaming. This is a 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.
