“For those who have lost hope about the possibility of using education to create a more just and democratic society, this book will be a reminder of what can be achieved when educators act with the courage of their convictions to speak out and write about what is occurring in our schools today.” – Pedro Noguera, Professor, UCLA

“Out of this cacophony rises a beautiful, lyrical voice—one that is uncompromisingly self-aware, reflective, and analytical. That transcendent voice belongs to ‘The’ José Luis Vilson.”
Chicago Teachers Union
“This Is Not A Test: A New Narrative on Race, Class, and Education … This Is Not a Test is a refusal to be silent. It’s a refusal to capitulate or conform … Because in doing so – particularly in education – we help support one another in growth, in coming-of-age, in learning, and in liberation.”
Vilson delivers a resounding shout against educational policy for exhibiting rampant cultural illiteracy, and sounds a galvanizing rallying cry for teachers and students to make their voices the most rather than least considered in future developments.
