|Another phony graph on the HoLa Trustee's "education blog"|
GA prefers not to be the Texas Truth-Twister's ombudsman, but his latest cyber-turd must be flushed.
Yesterday, GA posted 'apples-to-apples' Hola/ Hoboken District demographic data to refute this cyber-turd on that discredited "education blog":
"The demographic differences between Hola and the Hoboken School District at the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades are minimal..."Ummm, no they are not. That is why GA posted the NJDOE's own demographic charts.
In response, the Texas Truth-Twister excreted a new cyber-turd on his "education blog"- the above "Grades K-5" graph.
That graph is lying.
In fact the Truth-Twister's graph is a cyber-turd of mammoth proportions.
Allow GA to correct it for you. Here it is- corrections are in red:
|CORRECTED by GA. Petrosino got every fact wrong- see data below.|
My methodology is simple. It's called "arithmetic."
Here's the data, taken directly from the NJDOE website. Check my work, people. Unlike the Truth-Twister, I post my source data, he "interprets" it.

Remember, if you do your own calculations, use the total # of district students, and totals for each demographic group. Calculate each as a percentage of the whole. Do the same for Free and Reduced Lunch.
It's simple math. You don't have to be a Truth-Twister from the University of Texas at Austin (Netherlands campus) to figure it out.
The 'tell' that Petrosino's bullshitting you is how he lumps blacks and Hispanics together.
Why wouldn't a Spanish- English Dual language school want to show its Hispanic demographic?
Because the school is only 29% Hispanic.
That is far below the district's Hispanic student population (50.7%) and far below the 50-50 English/Spanish demographic the program purported to have when it applied for its charter.
Why aren't more Hispanic children in the program when Hoboken has a substantial Hispanic population?
And why does Petrosino lump blacks and Hispanics together?
They are two distinct demographic groups. They should not be treated like "those people." GA won't use the 'R' word that comes to mind.
GA note: Yes, he's an idiot. Yes, his "education blog" is discredited. But, Petrosino's fudged data will end up in the mouths of current and future BoE candidates and/or be disseminated citywide by Dark Side tools like Al Sullivan. So, that is why it's necessary to flush Petrosino's cyber-turds before they stink up the Hoboken zeitgeist.
