I'm talking about Parents United.
|Parents United made a cameo appearance|
Imagine that. Parents United came hat in hand looking for votes, only days after trashing the High School at the QLC Hoboken School Board Candidates Debate, where they brought a gang of THUGS to terrorize and distract their opponents, Forward Together (1-2-4).
The false, disparaging statements about the High School are too numerous to repeat. The lies include: "QSACs have gone down" (false- QSACs have gone UP from 34% under Anthony Petrosino to 76% under Reform), that the "number of kids graduating High School have gone down" (false- graduation numbers are increasing, Parents United quoted wrong), and trashed our SAT scores (ignoring the obvious- 83.1% attending the HJSHS are "economically disadvantaged" according to the 2014-2015 NJDOE performance report).
At the same time Parents United disparaged the High School, they admitted that they had not gone to a single School Board meeting, which showed. Parents United were woefully uniformed about Hoboken High School's array of exciting new and existing programs.
So you can imagine, tonight parents were absolutely livid to see them there only days after trashing their High School. One observed: "the staff were none-too-pleased to see them there."
Why should they be?
High School staff, faculty and parents know that Parents United took a big dump on Hoboken High School and its students last Thursday.
High School staff, faculty and parents know that Parents United brought an APE to harass candidates 1-2-4 with a flashlight and thugs to make noise in the rear, distracting the audience when 1-2-4 spoke.
Folks, it's no secret that the people, thugs and apes backing Parents United controlled the Hoboken District Schools until 2009 when Reform gave them the boot.
They are BACK in 2016.
The thugs want Parents United to win, to get back control of the Hoboken District education budget then plunder it like they did before.
GA documented some of their atrocities in a series of posts gleaned from the 2005-2006 KPMG Performance Audit of the Hoboken District Schools. I called the 2011 collective:
