Aide Worked on Secret Projects for Ackerman, Expects to Be Fired

Christopher Akers—a Philadelphia School District aide—expects to be fired for work he completed while Arlene Ackerman was the district superintendent. Akers created an iPhone game that features Ackerman as a super hero and did some other work on projects for Ackerman that the PSD considers to be “theft of time.” Akers maintains he was just doing what was asked of him by his boss.
