2013 QSAC Results for Hoboken School District- Instruction and Program still lags

For yet another year, the Hoboken School District failed (score below 80%) to achieve a passing score in INSTRUCTION AND PROGRAM on the yearly Quality Single Accountability Continuum (QSAC) and its score actually fell by a percentage point. This is especially disappointing since a few short years ago, the INSTRUCTION AND PROGRAM DPR score was 87%. This was shortly after the Hoboken Board of Education passed the curriculum I worked on with many teachers in the district. Perhaps it might be worth asking Hoboken Board of Education member and Curriculum Chair Ms. Ruth McAllister what is going on. No doubt she will come up with some rationale based on "years of neglect" rather than wanting to discuss the precipitous drop in INSTRUCTION AND PROGRAM under her leadership. This marks 3 years in a row that the district has failed the INSTRUCTION AND PROGRAM DPR after passing with a score of 89% due to the efforts of the previous Board administration and District leadership.  -Dr. Petrosino
