    I just heard 2 minutes ago. Queen Arlene has been dethroned.

    Too bad it won't matter who replaces her. The problems with the SDP lie in the organization itself, not just who runs it.

    Anyone find it remarkable that private donors actually paid to help get rid of her?

    Arlene Ackerman is out as Philly superintendent | Philly | 08/22/2011


    I wonder how many of those private donors are attached to charter schools?

    It's a shame they've decided that she needs money to go away--she should have been fired outright for cause.

    Now, to change the SRC--they've been part of the problem.

    agreed! How long has the SRC been around? 10 years now?

    I was glad to hear this, tired of all the lying and drama. What is sick is the extreme selfishness of this woman. She should have taken a page from this man and donated her exorbitant fee back to the kids who need it. Would have been the best way to kick her detractors in the teeth, brought her good publicity, redeemed her character and possibly gotten her a job elsewhere. Instead she simply confirmed all her detractors were saying about her.

    Greedy... you fill in the expletive. She is a WONDERFUL example to the kids of phllly of what is wrong but unfortunately the only lesson they will take from this is how to scam money. GREAT GOING ARLENE - HORRID ROLE MODEL!!!!!

    You disgust me.

    I'm glad the witch is dead, but she's still laughing all the way to the bank. Disgusting. Who are these private individuals who helped buy out her contract?

    Hey, can we home owners have a do-over with Nutter's property tax increase for this *itch?

    Details on the Ackerman buy out on KYW about 11:30. Seems a bit different than reported.
    But all in all, it's been a fabulous year for Laura and me.

    From a tweet:

    Jim_Gardner Jim Gardner
    RT @briantaff6abc: Phila School Dist confirms Dr. Ackerman is getting $905,000 to walk away. 405K is from "anonymous private" sources.


    That's an awful lot of freaking money!

    I think she's repeatedly demonstrated how much she "cares for the kids". Don't expect to see a dime of that anywhere but in her bank account.

    Default I'm just happy the bitch is gone

    On WURD Radio the standard line is that the complaints about her began when she awarded the security camera contract to IBS. The idea is "They" didn't want a minority contractor doing the job. Really the complaints began after the assaults on the Asian students at Southern, I've wanted her gone since then. This has been a long time coming, and while I don't like that she had to be paid off, the callers on Al B in the Afternoon will be furious. Can't wait to tune in on the drive home.

    Unfortunately she's getting $905,000 to hit the road and Leroy Nunnery is the interim CEO, but Ackerman's gone. About time !

    A million ****ing dollars. What bull****. She shouldn't have gotten a penny. They should bill her for the cost overruns of her ****ty policies.

    She also cost the homeowners more money with the property tax increase. The witch shouldn't get ANYTHING.

    School Reform Commission phone number 215-400-4010....if you would like to express your displeasure at the $905,000 buyout.
