A Texas high school student has been suspended for writing the word "YOLO" on the essay portion of an exam, then tweeting a photo of the page to school officials. The high school junior defended his actions by noting that the test would have no impact on his G.P.A and would not be screened by universities. However, the Arlington school district felt it was no laughing matter and have disciplined the student with a four-day on-campus suspension.
