America’s education crisis is fueled by an obsession with test scores and a fixation on international rankings. The film Beyond Measure asks a new set of questions about educational success: What if our education system valued personal growth over test scores? Inquiry over mimicry? Passion over rankings? What if we decided that the purpose of school was not the transmission of facts or formulas, but the transformation of every student? And what if this revolution were driven by students, parents and educators, not politicians and policymakers.

Beyond Measure weaves the stories of four public school communities across the country who are challenging the wisdom of outmoded, data-driven practices. The film follows students and educators as they seek inspiration from expert research and guidance from schools on the cutting edge of educational change.
