The timing seems just about right.
TAKS stands for the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills, but my understanding is that that was not the original acronym.
Without further ado, here are The Top Ten Rejected Meanings of TAKS:
10) Texas Accepts Kids’ Suffering
9) That Aggravating Kidney Stone
8) Teachers against Knuckle Sandwiches
7) This Ain’t Kansas, Scarecrow
6) Talking About Kama Sutra
5) Testing All Kids Simultaneously
4) Throw Away Knowledge, Sonny
3) Think Again, Kindergarten Students
2) Take Another Kid’s Sanity
1) This Assessment Kinda Sucks
