This Week is TAKS-ing to My Wallet Once Again

Since it's the week of standardized testing in Texas schools, I posed the question on Facebook: Which April event is more evil--Tax Day or TAKS week? (My set of responders--mostly teachers--were almost unanimous in declaring the state tests as being even worse than opening up your wallet to Uncle Sam. (But for those in my area of teaching--at least the public school part--I have to open up my wallet either way, since I'm teaching maybe half of my private students ths week, although that's an improvement over years past.)

What say you? Tell me in the comments.

Yea, TAKS sucks. Especially considering I didn't owe uncle sam anything this year.
