Ever hear of a Texas Twister?
There's the kind that can rip off a roof...
Then there's the kind that spins internet-cow patties at 200 mph.
Well, better watch out 'cause a tornado of graphs, data, and bullshit just blew in from Austin, Texas!
Yes, ANOTHER moronic manifesto has been excreted.
Only this rambling, incoherent mess is a Texas-sized crack-up: SEVEN crapademic graphs, NINE "peer-reviewed" references, mumbo-jumbo mixed with political spin, a vintage lament over Paula OHaus, (never heard of Danielle Miller?), and more circa-2010 talking points that fell out of a dusty time machine.
In short: a frantic, nutty effort to patch up a quick-sinking S.S. Crapademic.
GA sank that ship last Friday by (simply) pointing out omissions from the Crapademic's "graph" which purported to compare Hudson County districts' graduation rates with the NJ state average.
So what did Count Crapula do?
He excluded districts with lower grad rates than Hoboken's, and omitted the "economically disadvantaged" as a factor impacting graduation rate. (Which GA pointed out very politely.)
Hence, this weekend's Crapademic crack-up, edited by Count Crapula several times over the weekend.
Did I mention this crapademic excretion listed NINE Academic and Peer Peviewed Sources "used in part or in whole in the preparation of the post" ?
Any academic knows when publishing other people's research "in part or in whole " it is a matter of ethics to footnote the "part(s) or the whole" of other people's work you publish.

Let's say you were a Crapademic. A real hack.
Let's say you lived in a state that had a lot of cows.
Let's say you left a school district in shambles after a Board Majority canned you and/or failed to renew your contract, after which you sued and lost.
Let's say you became so disgruntled that you would jeopardize your real academic life for the fake one-- where you excrete crapademic dung by the cyber-barrel.
Let's say that your crapademic dung fertilizes 2 or 3 members of the current Hoboken School Board.
Let's say you fertilize them with dung from your "education blog," in order to grow an election platform in order to remove the School Board members (or faction) who canned your sorry ass in 2009...
Can you imagine that?
