Arlene Ackerman Has Filed for Unemployment

Yes, really. Ackerman was given $905,000 on a silver platter before being chased from the Philadelphia School District by parents and citizens wielding torches and pitchforks. But, apparently $1 million didn’t do the trick because the former superintendent has filed for unemployment. The $905,000 buyout and $86,700 for unused vacation time were issued in addition to her $6,669 weekly salary. [FOX 29]
