It says: "I have the TAKS test to study for, not this unneeded craziness."

An Arlington, Texas, student who was apparently determined to get suspended was suspended after writing YOLO on a standardized test, and then tweeting the above photo at the Texas Education Agency and Arlington ISD. Kyron Birdine, a junior, was annoyed that he was being forced to take a STAAR test when he only needs the TAKS, not the STAAR, to graduate. When asked by the local news to explain his actions, the student said, "I was being a high school kid getting on Twitter." You certainly were, young man.

Even after his suspension, he continued to tweet about the injustice of it all, generating the hashtag #FreeKyron (from his four-day, in-school suspension). Here's a sample of the tweets dedicated to this inspiringly lazy kid:
