Top tip: don't troll the people in charge and expect to get away with it.

Also?

nearly has a 3.0 grade point average

The article tries to make this kid sound like a good student having a little fun... he's your average C student schmuck.

Because he sees no need to take a test that will have absolutely no effect on him whatsoever?

"Nearly" a 3.0 would be just under a B average on a normal four-point scale.

A friend of mine said YOLO last weekend. I thought about punching her in the neck.

SUSPENDED is not an acronym with which I am familiar. Somebody please put it on a cat-themed meme jpg so that I may understand.

I have to admit, I'm kind of torn here.

Maybe it's because you can see the essay question, not his answer, that is causing the problem? I can't really make out what is in the photo there.

For some reason it only seems to be teenagers that do this, but trying to excuse one's behavior by saying "I'm just being a teenager" or "I was being a high school kid" makes me think you deserve more punishment, not less. Being self-aware enough to know that you're a dumbass doesn't excuse your dumbass behavior.

I understand the frustration in being made to take a test that means absolutely nothing, but dude...

He sent it to Arlington ISD and the Texas Education Agency.

Really? Come on. That's basically asking to be disciplined. Also:

"I was being a high school kid getting on Twitter," he explained.

He acts like this is an age old phenomenon. I use Twitter, and I like Twitter, but I thank god we didn't have texting, Twitter, and Facebook when I was in high school just 15 years ago. No good can come from that.

How about no phones in the class? Not to sound like an old man yelling at a cloud, but we didn't have cellphones when I went to high school.

Interesting. The same people who complain about "teaching to the test" are also complaining that this student colored outside the lines.
 
2013-04-02 11:26:59 AM
He's in trouble for tweeting the test page, not for writing YOLO. As he should be. WTF was he doing with a phone in the test anyway?

To be fair, a 3.0 average in Texas is like a 0.5 in a good school system.

Which for high school is generally not something you would brag about.  Makes sense that he'd do something stupid like this.

Worse than that:

Using an iPad, he tweeted a photo of the word YOLO

How the fsck do you get to take an iPad into a standardized testing session???

/Screw the kid and his mom.
//He broke the rules and payed the consequences.
///Don't do stupid shiat and post it on the interwebs.
 
2013-04-02 11:30:49 AM
4.0=A average
3.0=B average
2.0=C average
1.0=D average


Your GPA not mattering after your first job...priceless.

Then why take the test at all?  Why both showing up if you don't need to and have no intention of honoring.

Because high school attendance isn't voluntary.

The sad part is his mom probably IS so proud.  My boy, he's a real smart lurner and he got hisself a really good score on that there PSAT test thingy.  He's gonna be the first one in the familee to almost graduate high school.

Suspension.
If you are a school official, the absolutely magical wonderful cure-all for all your woes.
And best of all, requires no thinking at all.
 
2013-04-02 11:33:20 AM
I feel this is more of a detention kind of idiocy, not a suspended kind of idiocy. He shouldn't be using his cell phone in the classroom. Mucking around on a test has its own long-term punishment that does not need to involve the school administrators.

Worse than you think.  According to their school handbook on page 13, a 3.0 is not a passing GPA there.  A 4.0 indicates an average of 70 or better in classes.

Kid's a moron.

Actually, on every four-point scale I've seen, "nearly a 3.0" would be a solidly average B...average.

That punishment is four-day on-campus suspension

What does that mean exactly?  He isn't kicked out for 4 days, he still has to go to school.. whats different?  He isn't allowed to participate in extra-curricular activities during that period?

Wow. In that case, I really want to know what "a high score" on the PSAT was.

If mom bought him an ipad for being a C+ student, what would he get if he actually accomplished something?
 
2013-04-02 11:36:51 AM
Okay, so I had to look up the differences between STAAR and TAKS. STAAR tests are much more difficult and are based on a national expectation of intelligence rather than a Texas level of intelligence. They also focus solely on what the student has learned that year instead of a cumulative test like TAKS.

Also, I found this little blurb in a newspaper article from 2012...

For Texas students in grades three through nine, the TAKS tests are being replaced by STAAR this year. (Students in higher grades will graduate under the old TAKS rules.) The first of the new tests will be given next week. Those first exams are writing tests for grades four and seven and high school English I, II and III; reading tests for grades five and eight and English I, II and III; and math for grades five and eight.
This foolish kid thinks he is going to take two state tests this year? He is junior and doesn't realize how expensive this testing is? Kid is a junior and thinks that THIS will look good on a college app? "Yeah, I got suspended for writing YOLO on my state testing and posting the confidentially prepared test online instead of taking it. I'll make for a great college student at your university."
 
2013-04-02 11:37:16 AM
Is this that "No Student left behind Test" In my day, it was just the SAT that determined whether you got in to college. It was just that test and the check daddy sent to the university and, of course, he was Phegma Phegma Spit so I had to be accepted.
