Why would someone with real academic credentials undermine his credibility with a transparently political blog, festoon it with easily debunked, cartoon-like graphs and crudely redacted letters?
Meet crapademic Anthony Petrosino. His latest excretion is "Hoboken Public Schools Score 45% on QSAC DPR in Instruction and Program....4th Consecutive Year of Failing Scores During Kids First Era."
Why does GA call Dr. Petrosino's May 11, 2015 blog post an "excretion"?
For one thing, he writes: "Under the political group known as Kids First and their Board of Education majority leadership...the score in Instruction and Program have fallen dramatically."
Last night Interim Superintendent Brockel announced the district's new QSAC scores, and the score for the DPR Area "Instruction and Programing" was 75%.
That's right. 75% not 45%.
Hey, crapademic Petrosino was only off by 30 points. There's more; refer to Exhibits 1 through 4 below.
EXHIBIT NO. 1
|EXHIBIT NO. 1- PETROSINO/RASLOWSKY PERFORMED MISERABLY WHEN THEY RAN THE DISTRICT|
EXHIBIT NO. 2
Petrosino produces a letter from the NJDOE dated July 16, 2014, with the district's QSAC scores. Oddly, Petrosino redacts 4 out of 5 scores. WHY?
|EXHIBIT NO. 2- PETROSINO REDACTS DATA TO COOK A RESULT|
EXHIBIT NO. 3
The 45% score cited in June 2014 was an outlier. The NJDOE 2013-2014 QSAC scores for the Hoboken district in the DPR Area of Instruction and Program was 69% (not 45%)
EXHIBIT NO. 4
Here is the Petrosino crapademic graph corrected by GA. The outlier was removed; replaced by NJDOE QSACs for the 2013-2014, showing a 69% score for "Instruction and Program."
Lesson over, boys and girls.
